Wallpaper won't go away

By Ang. ·
I have a few users that have the same wallpaper no matter how hard you try to get rid of it. I do not believe there are profiles set up. Any suggestions? Thanks.

The first thing I would do is go to Control Panel, Passwords, and see if User Profiles are enabled. Next check your PDC and see if those users have profiles set up on the server side - i.e. roaming profiles. Next open up the local registry with policy editor and see if there has been a default wallpaper specified. Lastly, if nothing else works, you can always put a policy on the PDC for your 9x machines and restrict access to their desktop settings after you correct it or specify a particular wallpaper of your own choosing.

Right click on the desktop and choose Properties. Under the Background tab there should be an image (wallpaper) of your desktop and the title of it should be highlighted. Click on the "Browser" botton at the right or go to C:\Windows and locate the name of that image and delete it.

I'm using Window ME, so the options that I listed above maybe a little different depending on what version of Windows you use. HTH

Do you use login scripts. They can point to wallpapers on the server. Do you know the name of the wallpaper, if so search for on your server and Delete it.
Best of luck.

Try the following:

1. Boot the PC as usual.
2. When you get to the logon screen(s), click "Cancel". This will load the default user.
3. Remove the wallpaper.
4. Reboot and log on as usual.

Hope that helps.
