    Hey,

    I am having some trouble with my school background, I have the backgrounds on the school sever so when someone logs onto the computer the background shows up. But for some reasons there are times that the background wont fully load, it will try to load but only a small fraction of the background is visible.

    If anyone can help it will be much appreciated :)

    Are your wallpapers in BMP or JPG format?

    When using JPG Windows caches the BMP under:

    C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft

    e.g. Wallpaper1.bmp

    I recommend using BMP files alongside Group Policy to prevent it being cached.
