    We push out an active desktop to all of our users and it gives a nice background with links. One of our employees downloaded something like a picture and it is now her background. I have checked a couple of registry settings and found where one had been changed and I changed it back but still did not fix it. I downloaded and ran malwarebytes and it found 4 problems and I fixed and rebooted but still her background is changed. Funny thing is, it is only in her profile and not anyone else on the computer. Any ideas?

    I just had to delete her profile and add it back. This cleared the problem.
