For some instances, someone change the wallpaper through internet explorer/mozilla firefox.


heres tutorial on how to prevent it.

my example is for Administrator account(you can do to all user accounts)

For Internet Explorer

Open C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer

On Internet explorer folder create a .bmp file(right click select new select bitmap image), Name it "Internet Explorer Wallpaper.bmp"



right click on Internet Explorer Wallpaper.bmp, click properties
On properties Select Security tab select administrator and check all deny in Permision for Administrator then click Ok



For Mozilla Firefox

Open C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox

On Firefox folder create a .bmp file(right click select new select bitmap image),this time name it "Desktop Backgroud.bmp"



right click on Desktop Background.bmp, click properties
On properties Select Security tab select administrator and check all deny in Permision for Administrator then click Ok
