Hi Experts.

We have our users set up in group policies. When we have power cuts some users screens change to that active desktop recovery wallpaper. we run gpupdate /sync aswell as /force but the wallpaper stays as the desktop recovery display.  We have to manually take them out of GPO and change the wallpaper with the administrator account. Is their a tool or app that we can install to prevent this problem occuring??? it is really annoying and time consuming to change every single users pc after a power failure. Oh, by the way, this also happens without power failures. It happens sometimes just randomly. Please help.

Stick it in Startup, point it to a central config file on a share.

make sure that active x is allowed in Group Policies as that is blocking your pc's from running content
