Re: Disable Command Prompt

If you have a domain controller you can configure Group Policy at the domain
or Organizational Unit level and it will apply to all users or computers as
the case may be that are under the scope of management of that GPO. For
instance if you configure a "user configuration" setting such as you did it
could potentially apply to all users in the domain if configured on a GPO
linked to the domain container or if you did it on an OU it would apply only
to user accounts in that OU and possibly child OU's if no other conflicting
setting was applied in a GPO linked to a child OU.

Thanks so much, I was able to figure out how to do it both ways. This may
sound like a dumb question, but I was looking at the group policy in
and noticed there are several settings you can change. We are upgrading
Win server 2003 soon and if apply changes to the group policy on the
controller or the server with 2003 (such as setting the screensaver, etc)
does those settings automaticaly take place over the entire network or are
there additional steps I need to take first??

For XP Pro use Group Policy and go to user configuration\administrative
