I have a domain running server windows 2003. The users can not manually change their wallpapers, They are restricted because a prior admin set a Group Policy somewhere, however I havent been able to find it yet. But the users have been been able download or open pictures and set it as their wallpaper. 1. How do I prevent them from changing their wallpaper? 2. How do I restore the original xp wallpaper on their desktops? I assume it can be done thru a group policy? or If I am going to go to each desktop and sign in as admin, how do I change that users profiles wallpaper back to the default. I'm getting up to speed on the 2003, so any input would be most appreciated.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If it is controlled through a GPO, In the Group Policy Managememnt Console you should be able to run the group policy results wizard for a specific machine and user. I would suggest you do this to see the policies that are in place. Once you find the policies applying to a machine, check the details for the policy that is controlling the desktop wallpaper. I have this policy in place and the settings come from the user settings/admiistrative templates, control panel/display prevents changing the wallpaper and desktop/active desktop specifies the wallpaper you want to apply.
