At work we are removing users administrative privileges on computers and setting them as just users. This is working perfectly fine except for a handful of people. The problem we are having is when we remove admin rights they are loosing their background image, their start menu changes from classic to standard, my computer, documents, etc disappear, and their icons lineup on the left if they were organized differently. If they try and go in and change their background back it does not change but the funny thing is when they log off and log on it shows their background while its logging in and loading settings. You can change the start menu back to classic but when you log off and back on it is changed back to the default. I'm stumped as to what could be causing this on just a few select people. If you give them admin rights back again everything is fine. CLIFFS: Remove admin rights, users can't change desktop/start menu properties. Give them back and everything is fine. We are running win xp pro.
