That is a good idea...

There is a Reg Key to do this.
        HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop\ScreenSaverIsSecure = 1
You will have to do some scripting to get the value of users that
belong to the computer though.
(.DEFAULT would change to some other value)

Good Luck

Subject: Locking Screen Savers

Is there a way in NT and Win2000 to force all users in a domain to
have locking screen savers (automatically, through policy editor or
something)? I want all users to have to Ctrl-Alt-Del and type in
their password everytime they leave and come back to their desk,
preventing other people from using their ID while logged into the
network. I don't want to do this manually.........

All advice is appreciated!! Thanks

Paul
