I currently have a 2008 domain controller and a mix of XP and Windows 7 clients.  I would like to create a GPO that will force our corporate wallpaper and not allow users to change it. I have found some links on EE but none are real clear, nor do they mention XP and WIN7 mixed environment.  Please assist!!

3)  "Enable" the "Prevent Changing Wallpaper" under User Configuration->Administrative Templates->Control panel->Displa
