Cannot Change Background?

It says that it has been disabled by the administrator, yet i am the network administrator?

Any ideas?

Hello Betty,

You might double check these tutorials to see if they may be the issue with their group policies enabled.

Desktop Background - Allow or Prevent Changing

Hope this helps,

Log into one of the PCs with a local account and see if you can change the background.

Just came across this hotfix.

I am logged onto our domain to which i am an administrator on so don't have any restricted GPO's link to this user group in AD so that shouldn't be a problem,. i double checked them anyway and it shows nothing in there.

I logged on locally and can change it but then i log back onto the domain and can't?
