Windows XP - Active Desktop Issues
I have read a few post's regarding issues with active desktop recovery problems whilst using roaming profiles. I only use roaming profiles for staff. I had to implement a block in group policy to stop anyone changing their backgrounds, which seems pretty standard in most environments. However since then one or two staff have been getting the active desktop recovery white page as a desktop. I have seen a post on the Microsoft Tech Net about deleting a registry entry which should solve the issue.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
This will work if you run the script on the local users profile, reboot and then it comes back as normal. However after a few days the problem seems to occur again. I have tried pushing this registry out via group policy with some success, however not on all accounts. I personally feel the issues are not being helped by staff being logged in more than once at different machines. This also seems to create issues with logon scripts, as you can see in pic2, shared folders become v2 and so do their local profiles. I have 2 questions, which someone may know the answer to.
Is there an easy way in windows xp / server 2008r2 environment to stop multiple logins.
And also, is there a better way to stopping backgrounds being changed. I current use a group policy based around adding a 1x1 bmp image to the desktop on logon and locking it there, I currently use method shown in pic3.
Any help / advice would be great.
BTW, I am also just running delprof2 on all machines to wipe out any outstanding profiles.
