    Wallpaper issue on Vista

    Hi

    I am having an issue with a vista business machine in school.

    Basically we have activated active desktop via GPO and everything is fine on all xp curriculum and admin machines apart from this vista machine.
    It displays a black backgound when user logs on, presumably something to do with the vista settings as we are using 2003 server?

    Any suggestions?

    the black wallpaper can mean that the machine has failed activation/or is running a dodgy copy.


    i don't think that active desktop works in vista either
