Desktops Wallpaper problem using AD

By hereigo311 ·
I work for a school. We are running Server 2003 and Active Directory. All of our computers are on our domain. (WIN XP) All the kids have roaming profile and they are very much lockdown. The problem i am having is that they change their background with no pleasent pictures. Using AD i disable that feature so they can't change their backgroudn anymore, well now, i am trying to use AD to use a default background on the students. I have a GP set for them, and when i enable the default background for all pc in AD it doesn't get apply. What am i doing wrong. I refreshed the policy.

Have you tried using mandatory profile? NTUSER.DAT is the user-specific portion of the registry. Change NTUSER.DAT to NTUSER.MAN. To know more about mandatory profile, go to TechNet on the Microsoft website.
