Having been restricted on what more I can do with my RIS image version of XP on the corporate network I shifted my attention to the users default profiles - the first time they had been updated since 2003; when we used Windows 2000

They got a custom background colour to minimise the flicker between the one shown on the logon screen (stored in the .default which is incidentally not the default user), added a stand in wallpaper (in case the user logging on did not fall into a category that gets one forced on by a gpo - broken down by region so they get their relevent tech support number), pre-configured outlook 2003/2007, my computer on the desktop -- all the tweaks i previously added via a logon script in vbs. Basically all good stuff and things you would want in on a client...

...but not a server. Is there any way that I can stop servers lookining in NETLOGON for the default user?

Blah.
Reverted the default user to the windows classic theme as it looked so bad on a Windows 2000 Server and took off a few of the tweaks (which are ultiamately applied in the GPO anyway) and all is well -- even threw in a few server tweaks as well (ie getting rid of the damn welcome message etc.)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
