I want to force users to have the default Windows XP Style/Apperance with a blank background. I have managed to force the blank background using GPO's but I can only find a GPO that force's a style using a msstyle file. The problem is I don't know how to create an msstyle file?

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance
Kevin

You mean under User Config, Start Menu and Taskbar, Force Classic Start Menu???

Or the one under User Config, control panel, display, desktop themes, Load a specific style or force Windows Classic ???

The second one User Config, control panel, display, desktop themes, Load a specific style or force Windows Classic. I want to force the XP style not the classic one.

OK, right.

So all you need to do is enable that an use Luna.msstyles

That's the default XP style.  Click the "explain" tab in the GPO to learn more.  You probably saw the Luna style and thought it wasn't the default, but it is.
