Group policy probs


How can I standardise the desktop themes accross both win XP and 2000 clients. I created a desktop GPO for all users in the domain and have found that some users have changed there desktop theme before the GPO was applied. I need to change the existing GPO to force windows classic theme. we're running windows 2000 DC's.  I can't see any option in Group policy to change themes.

Hi Anton2,

you need to download and import the 2003 adm files - they will give you much more control over desktop themes
just use the guide to importing adm files
