Why not just locate the wallpaper on a network share and point to it via the GPO Jamie indicates below?

It will run under the NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM context and should have all the rights you need. Or, if you have the Group Policy Preference (GPP) extensions deployed, you can also them to do simple file copies like this. For configuring the actual wallpaper though, you should use the native Group Policy settings so the wallpaper can easily be "undone" my simply removing the GPO . You'll need to configure the following policy settings: User Configuration/Administrative Templates/Desktop/Active Desktop/Enable Active Desktop = "Enabled" User Configuration/Administrative Templates/Desktop/Active Desktop/Active Desktop Wallpaper = "Local/UNC Path to Wallpaper" Keep in mind that once you configure it this way, the user will not be able to change it.
