    Angry Stop Limited users changing destop.

    Does anyone know of a fix, patch, program to stop users of a limited account changing desktop wallpapers in a school situation. Personally I like the bikini clad supermodel look but some don't. I would love to have it so that it either tells the little blighters that you cannot change this desktop wallpaper or reverts back to the old one after logging off.
    We also do not want them to add passwords to the limited account is there any way to stop that. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

    Microsoft SteadyState http://www.microsoft.com/windows/pro...s/default.mspx (it's free).

    It won't stop them changing anything, but everything changes back to the default configuration when you reboot (I think it also does it when you log off, but I'm not 100% sure on that).

    +1 for SteadyState.

    At the *most* they can change the Desktop background, until they log off then back on again

    Steadystate X3!

    Or try out http://majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=5841

    But I'm not sure if Returnil can be used in a corporate environment...

    I normally try to avoid using third party programs to get something done if it can already be done in windows.

    SteadyState x4, great for this kind of situation.
