Active Directory and policies.

I've been asked to implement a domain wide setting on each users workstation/profile so that every staff member has the same screen saver and wall paper. What is the best way to do this domain wide? Thanks!
1 Solution
Set a GPO at the Domain level.

Set these element:

User Config>Admin Templates>Control Panel>Display ::

Prevent Changing Wallpaper
Screen Saver
Screen Saver executable name
Password Protect the Screensaver
Screen Saver Timout

User Config>Admin Templates>Desktop>Active Desktop ::

Active Desktop Wallpaper
Allow only bitmapped wallpaper (optional)

This should do the job.
