GPO's - Wallpapers Disappear
I'm just tweaking a few GPO's on our test network, and I've configured desktop wallpapers via GPO's for each user type.
The staff GPO puts the wallpaper on fine, and it stays on, but the student GPO has a wallpaper when they first logon, then when the desktop loads it disappears, then when they logoff it comes back on during the logoff process.
I've guessing it has something to do with the student GPO being a whole lot more restrictive than the staff one, but can't put my finger on which setting it might be that needs adjusting.
Anybody come across this before?

If its windows 7 theres a hotfix that allows for gpo set wallpapers (not sure why it would apply to staff tho)
The "Desktop Wallpaper" Group Policy setting is not applied in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2

I've started a new GPO for the students, with only the desktop wallpaper setting configured and it now works. Time to do one folder at a time I think and see what was causing it.

Wow, just wow!
User Config -> Admin Templates -> Desktop -> Remove Recycle Bin icon from desktop
that's the one that was causing the issue! Crazy!
