    Cannot Change wallpaper

    Hello All,

    I cant change the desktop wallpaper on any of the workstations in the domain, you can get into properties but all options relating to wallpaper and the screensaver are greyed out.

    After a bit of googling I found that most people are suggesting spyware is the cause, but i can rule this out in my case as I've reghosted the machine with a known good image.

    I've also moved my test workstation into a new OU with no policy applied and blocked policy inheritance, but still no luck.

    Doesnt seem to be user related either as i've tried administrator as well as a freshly created domain admin account.

    Any ideas?

    Matt

    You might want to check your settings in group policy for desktop... it may be restricted there

    Open AD - Users and Computers
    Right click affected group of PC's
    Choose properities
    and then policy.

    have a look through the settings there, but speak to your (Unless you are him/her) before you change anything, as things can go very wrong in AD.

    there is a good amount of info on group policy if you google (can't think of any pages particular atm)
