Windows 7: BGinfo problems

Windows 7
BGinfo problems

I deploying PCs in Corporate Environment with Windows 7 SP1 Enterprise. Having some issues with BGinfo

This is the cmd file that is called

C:\Windows\BGInfo.exe C:\Windows\Custom.bgi /timer:5 /silent /NOLICPROMPT

This works fine but does not run silently i.e. the user see dos box with above command plus the bginfo screen. I've had to put a 5 second delay in to allow GPO to set corporate background first. I had hoped /silent would suppress it being displayed

Second problem is to do with multiple monitors. Although I've set the bgi to only display on the primary monitor there a multiple bginfo images (bit like the Matrix) over the two screens. I've read articles about not using stretch (which is set via policy) so its been changed to fill but still getting same display
