Hi all,

I have serious problem in corporate network with users that know how to change wallpapers via Internet Explorer (right click on image --> set as background) or they use Windows Picture and Fax Viewer to set your backround images. We configured GPO to disable Desktop tab in Display properties but this isn't enought to prevent users to change our corporate wallpaper.

Please,

if anyone know how to disable this backdoors?

Thanks,

JaCro

How about using mandatory user profiles?

Should reset the profile to default mandatory one you set.

Or you could look at a product like Deep Freeze.

Mandatory profiles in our organization is not an option. I lookin' somekind registry hack or local policy settings because we can't use GPOs also.

Thanks anyway... ;)

If you are using Active Directory set next options in group policy:

User Configuration/Administrative templates/Desktop/Active Desktop/Enable Active Desktop

and then

User Configuration/Administrative templates/Desktop/Active Desktop/Active Desktop Wallpaper
