Disable desktop wallpaper in SCCM remote tools

Disable desktop wallpaper in SCCM remote tools

Hi All

We've just recently installed SCCM 2007 so I'm quiet new to it (I didn't configure it either unfortunately).  We are using the remote tools as we have alot of users in small branch offices.  Prior to this we used remote assistance, but we are finding the remote tools a bit better.  However, one thing I would like to do is disable the display of desktop wallpaper when viewing a user's desktop

does anybody know if this is possible ?  I've heard that it's possible to do this with remote assistance on vista/win 7 - so surely it must be possible with SCCM ?  Our clients are all vista sp1

RE: Disable desktop wallpaper in SCCM remote tools

there is nothing in the sccm console under the 'Remote Tools Client Agent' and there is nothing in my book which tells me it can be done.
there is note that the settings in the SCCM console will override local policy but a domain policy will win over them both. so, perhaps there is something extra in the domain policy, but i doubt it.
there must be a local WMI class which holds the remote tools client properties, perhaps you could find that and it might give you something extra
