Windows 7 defaults to black background rather than Windows 7 default screen when user logs in.


We have Windows 7 and the staff had asked me to put a informative wall paper on all the desktops for a week.
I went to to the GPO that is applied for this user OU
User configuration-policies-Administrative templates-Desktop-Desktop
and set the policy to
Prohibit changes- Enabled

Desktop Wallpaper-Enabled
Gave the URL path, where the wall paper is located.
Wall paper style- Fill
Prohibit adding items-Enabled.

Now they asked me to remove the wall paper  and I went to the same GPO and set to the following:

Prohibit changes- Not Configured

Desktop Wallpaper-Not Configured
Prohibit adding items-Not Configured.

Now when users log in, the wall paper is a black screen  and i would like to put the Windows 7 default screen.

Even if put the windows 7 default screen manually and log off and log in it reverts back to Black background.
Please post me tutorials so that the desktop stays in Windows 7 default screen, when users log in.
