    Hey. I am currently at college and they have a server running Windows Sever 2003 and lots and lots of computers running Windows XP Pro. However I am annoyed about how tight there security is. It's doing my head it. They have even disabled the file menu, and the right click menu.

    When XP Pro boots up on the workstations it kinda of grabs all the group policies settings from a central server. I was wondering if there are any work arounds to this. Almost everything is tightly wrapped on the pc's such as changing the time is disallowed.

    So is there some kind of boot disk that can disable group policies? Or maybe enter a registry string? Though I doubt that could happen because regedit is disabled along with task manager and command prompt.

    There was once a user called student.user with the password student. Because their network totally f*cked (couldn't get user settings, work etc, inet didn't work) and was wondering if there would be a similar account for an admin? Ta if you can help.

    Perhaps you need to talk with the college sys admins, Bucko. If you need to do something legitimate, I'm sure they'll let you.

    Anyhow, we're not going to help you disable the group policies. Thread Closed.
