removing Dell background on preconfigured servers

Dell prebuilt servers come with a wallpaper background that appears whenever you remote desktop to that box - which can be very slow over a low bandwidth connection. Found this registry change that will get rid of that default wallpaper:

Open Regedit and modify the following key
HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop\Wallpaper
Change value from \windows\system32\DELLWALL.BMP to blank, as in nothing, not the word ‘blank’.
