Registry question

Mike Hyndman

We have several users on our PC's who spend more time playing with the
desktop wallpaper etc., than actually working. If I disable the ability
to alter the desktop in the registry (as administrator) will this change
be valid in all accounts?
TIA

Group Policies are valid to all users on one machine.

What XP OS do you have? Depending on the branch you edit changes can be
global or only local. Better off to attempt to set the users as restricted or
guest or other type of accounts by going start\run and type in control
userpasswords2 and then click ok and then click the name of the account and
then the properties button and set their account up the way you want. Sounds
like restricted may be a good choice. TTFN.

Won't run on this PC, only one account?
and then click ok and then click the name of the account and
then the properties button and set their account up the way you want.
But would I be able to prevent them changing wallpapers/desktop settings
this way. I have used the registry method in the past but it was only on
a one account PC
Sounds >like restricted may be a good choice. TTFN.
Many thanks...who ever you are.....;-)

When all else fails, pick slips seem to work better than any other
means.
