Assigned background not showing on an XP pro 32 bit SP3 workstation
Posted on 2011-03-04
I have a workstation on my network that's having a problem displaying the background that's assigned to it via domain GPs. The background is a .bmp along with BGinfo that's deployed out to every PC on the network so that everyone has the same background including their PCs info.
The problem at only one workstation is that while logging in, it pops up for a quick second, but as all icons are loaded the background goes away and the only thing that shows is the default blue background. All other backgrounds are grayed out when trying to change them, even for admins.
I've done a gpupdate /force, checked registry entries, verified the files presence, done registry cleans, cleaned all temp DIRs and even rebuilt profiles and I still end up with the same results as described above.
Although this is a very low priority, it would be nice to know if anyone else has had this problem and maybe figure something out before I just simply re-image the machine.
