Batch file attached: clearPolicy
Description: This batch file removes all policy settings for the current user and recreates the default ones. It also removes machine level folder options and system restore restrictions.

You can either run the attached batch file or follow the steps below:


Click Start, choose Run and execute regedit.

Navigate to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies

Delete all the folders under this key related to Wallpaper or Active Desktop or simply delete all the keys.
