Hello! A few weeks ago you were all very helpful in advising me as a GPO Newgirl, thank you very much for that J Everything has gone pretty much to plan with rebranding and forcing policies on the office machines here and the boss was happy! J One problem I am experiencing though is with the Active desktop... it seems to be struggling to load on machines quite often.. what happens is the top inch or two of the screens show the picture but the rest of the screen is black (icons are fine), we have to press F5 to refresh and show the full desktop... how can I sort this out? The jpeg was being picked up from a network drive and I have moved it locally hoping that would help but it doesn't! Has anyone else experienced this please? Before I forced out the desktop background people in the office had all kinds of desktops and never had this problem so it seems to point at the group policy. Thank you!
