\\server\Shares\Wallpapers  (Allow Read Access for all Users)

I have done every thing except all users . I have given authenticated users as read . Do I have to give access to Domain\users as well . Anyway I can access the set path from the client machine . but still client PC will load with the black background . when I check with the client PC , I can see the  set wallpaper in the local client pc under personalized wallpapers section  .     I have applied that manually and restart the client PC . then it will go back to the old blank black background

I have given read and execute / list folder content and read permission

Still the same
have you tried to access the location in server in which .jpg exist ?
\\server\Shares\Wallpapers

the DC administrator and all domain users should have access to that location

try to access that location from DC and from the client as well
