Q

How can I prevent users from undoing policies with gpedit?

I'm using gpedit to limit the freedom of my users, but when the users sign on they can also use gpedit to undo policy changes. It seems a bit pointless to have restrictions if the means to reverse them is not also restricted. There must be a way to disallow users to change policies. What am I missing? My network is all Windows 2000, no server, no Active Directory. Please assist!
Take a look at these Microsoft recommendations ( http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;323525). Also, have you considered removing or renaming, and thus obscuring, gpedit.msc?
