    yeah i have a reg file that is merged with a start up script pointing to thenew wallpaper on the local drive or you could use a server share

    startup script
    Set oShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
    sRegFile = "C:\desktops\logon.reg"
    oShell.Run "regedit.exe /s " & Chr(34) & sRegFile & Chr(34), 0, True

    reg

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    ; Change Wallpaper On Login Screen (For Non-Welcome Screen Users)
    [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop]
    "Wallpaper"="C:\\Desktops\\logon.bmp"

    done it slightly different way.

    Batch File on Startup running:

    copy \\wwndc01\wallpaper$\Wallpaper.bmp C:\wallpaper.bmp
    regedit.exe /s \\wwndc01\wallpaper$\Wallpaper.reg

    Why copy to the workstations ?

    We just have a central wallpaper on one of the servers, it makes it trivial to change for a new one.

    Reg setting done by group policy rather than startup script (pointing to \\dfsdomain\etc\wallpaper.jpg), makes it more easily managed.
