Upgraded to IE7 now lost wallpaper
Over the summer break I deployed IE7 to the whole network and now users are complaining that they no longer have their desktop wallpaper.
I've googled this to death, and tried manually changing a couple to work out what is going on, but everyone is just getting the default blue screen.

Do you allow users to go into display properties and choose a wallpaper, or do they all use the same wallpaper which is controlled by you?

Students have wallpaper deployed by group policy and cannot change it.
Staff can change their wallpaper by going to desktop properties.
Neither of these are working. Strange this is that the selected wallpaper appears as the user is logging on and off, but disappears once fully logged on.

You can't dictate the wallpaper with IE7 - just how it goes I suppose.
I tried to at my last school. Ended up removing IE7 and going back to 6.

Thanks, but surely users should still be able to select their own wallpapers with IE7 installed?

I'm also having the same problem. Did you manage to resolve this issue?

I've found this on a couple of machines today - I thought I must have done something wrong. I'n also losing networked printers on some machines. They show in the printer list but are not actually there - very strange.

No I still have this problem.

This is where the default wallpaper is picked up, this needs to read C:\windows\(yourlogo).bmp where "yourlogo" is the desktop of your choice
The current users are found in the same place but in the HKEY_CURRENT_USERS

OK thanks. Still doesn't enable the users ability to add their own desktop though.
