Hey guys (I just realized I start off every post the same way), I'm having an issue involving Windows Server 2003, Group Policy on the Domain Controller, and a wallpaper that won't go away. A few days ago, one of the people I worked with wanted his new wall paper pushed out to everyone who logs in. Initially, I set it up to be applied to all of the user created groups on AD. There were a few users that weren't getting it, so I applied the GP to the entire domain. Here at work, it isn't feasible to have the background applied because when we remote into that client's computers using the Administrator accounts (or what have you), we get extreme performance slow downs using RDP. I removed the group policy from the domain, leaving it at the user groups (Now it doesn't affect all users, including Administrator). This worked, for the most part. We then ran into an issue where we were still seeing the background on the domain controller (where the policy was applied from) for the Administrator accounts. We're unable to change it, the policy is locking down desktop changes. My co-worker explained that deleting the entry from the registry should take care of it... though we still can't change the desktop background, we at least don't have the pre-existing background displaying. This worked for the Administrator account. We have our own Administrator account that we use to connect to the computers. The same thing is happening there, but when I deleted the wall paper from the registry, it still constantly displays. I've tried gpupdate /force and everything, but didn't work. What can I do to enable it so that on the domain controller we will once again be able to change the background as administrator?
