\\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
