I embedded a screenshot (sample) of what I want done. I pointed my .bmp file (e.g. - c:\windows\image.bmp)  to HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop in the regedit, logged off and back on. It works the first time around, but when I log off and back on again, the image no longer displays. Then I went back to look at the registry, and it points back to C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\2\BGInfo.bmp . I want to make it possible for my admins to be able to view this via TS (RDP) as well.

Hi joensw,

Your method above works, but each time i log off/on again, it no longer shows because I think the BGInfo app I have changes the registry path from c:\windows\image.bmp to C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\2\BGInfo.bmp when i checked it again. I use BGInfo to display my system info on the desktop wallpaper, after I log into the system. So, how do I get the settings to save in the registry while using BGInfo?

OK, let me rephrase my question. If anyone out there is familiar with BgInfo and how to set group policy so that users are able to RDP into a server, and see all the system info on the desktop wallpaper after they log in, please let me know how to accomplish this.
