Q: PSA: One of the updates today installs gwx despite group policy

Just did updates today, 1 important and 4 optional. Have not researched yet which one exactly but one of those put GWX back on my PC despite having previously disabled OS Upgrades through group policy. When I checked my group policy is was set back to "Not Configured".

Preferred Solution: PSA: One of the updates today installs gwx despite group policy

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello,

I am finding on several machines that several group plocies have changed. The following changed that I am aware of:
-Change password button is enabled. (but correctly set in GP) (we have it set to disabled)
-shutdown is disabled so you have to log in to shut the system down
-last user name appears. (we have set to disable)

This is on Domain environment using Linux servers.

Any help would be appreciated, I have been looking at this for a couple weeks and found nothing, everything I find comes out false. Also these do not happen immediately after running updates (WSUS and Windows).

Hi all,
I received this message when i tried to look at the local group policy setting on one of my machines (Windows XP SP3), which is joined in my domain.
"Failed to open group policy object on this computer. You may not have appropriate rights.

note that I am local admin.
It's all started when I was troublshooting WSUS connectivity and i looked at the WinsdowsUpdate.log, the WSUS server was <Null> & WSUS status server <Null>, I tried to force the domain GP by using GPupdate /force, it went fine and asked to

I searched the internet nothing related to my case.

Hello, I've just installed KB3176929. Now I am running Windows 10 Education v1607, b14393.10.

Almost everything it's fine despite "Windows Update Settings" .

In the past I've used Local Group Policy Editor​ to tweak the settings and make Windows notify me when I need some update, without downloading or installing anything.

Now, in gpedit the relevant policy is still correct:
The problem is that in the Update section, under Settings it shows the following:
So it's clearly stated that download and installation will be executed without user intervention.
Also Active hours button is also displayed, but I have never had this before Anniversary update.
Before this update my Update Settings screen was similar to this one:
What I have already tried to get back the previous behavior:
set the policy Configure auto updates to not configuredshut down and power upset the policy Configure auto updates to enabled & 2 = Notify before...manually checked for updatereboot

I did not succeed.

Is this policy still applicable to Win 10 Edu?
Have you any suggestions?

Many thanks

P.S.: I am wondering if disabling active hours from registry can help or not.

Walk to each computer and set the policies on each computer. If you are not in a domain environment you are basically have to set each one manually.

My only other thought is if all the computers are exactly the same make and model and you have some type of imaging software. You could make a standard install on one computer with all the settings you want and then use that computer to image all the other computers on your network.

How do i set different group polices depending on user?

Thanks in advance

A:Set Group Policy different for each user group?

Yep. As long as the policies you want to deploy to those groups are per-user (i.e. within the user configuration section of GP Editor), then you can use a tool like Microsoft's GPMC to "security filter" the effects of a GPO to a particular user group. Or, you might want to check out Desktop Policy Manager--www.sdmsoftware.com/desktop_management, which provides a simplified web interface into Group Policy and makes targeting by group much simpler (full disclosure--I work for this company).

Hi there,

I have a network scenario which used to be solved with Go-Back, which would restore our 40 pc's in our school computer suite perfectly.

We would now like to build a clone and set some group policy lockdown and remove go-back, as its giving us problems. I have gone through and made most changes to the "adminstrative template" that would suit our scenario. When logging on as a test user this works perfectly. However these policys also affect administrators. Is this the way group policy works or is there a way to set the policys just for certain groups e.g 'domain users'.

Sorry no previous experience with group policy what so ever. I have mass reading for this evening but any tips in the mean time would be much appreciated.

Okay, I've done some research on XP Professional Group Policy, and have browsed the interface via the gpedit.msc

Now I'm ready to make a huge step (for me anyway) and that is disabling some features on my kid's "limited" XP accounts. Before I make any changes, however, I need to know I'm going about this in the right way.

I have 3 accounts set up on my laptop: 1 admin account, 2 limited accounts for my kids.

My Goal: to remove ready access to IE, Windows Updates, Add/Remove Programs, My Computer (so they can't delete any files from any directories), or anything else that a 4 year old and 7 year old might do to wreak havoc or go places they shouldn't be when I'm turning my back for a moment. Note that I say "ready" access to these things. I do understand that there are many ways to go about invoking/navigating to these applications/areas, but I figure I've got a while yet before my 7 year old figures out how to circumvent things. Removing the IE icon from the desktop, for example, should be enough for now.

I have been told using Group Policy will enable me to do this. I'm game to try this, but I've also read where I could render my entire machine useless even to the admin account. Soooo, I'm a little hesitant to do so.

Can anyone help or advise please.

I have a situation where I'm about to deploy 20 desktops and a few laptops along with an Exchange 2007 Server along with an ISA Server. At this time I want to take the opportunity to make sure that our Group Policy is all active and correct and restrict items like software installation.

The only problem I have, is that one of our main software applications, currently requires the users to have local admin access, which I'm afraid will over-ride any restrictions I enforce in the GPO.

Is there anyway of resolving this?

Thanks
 

A:Group Policy

I always recommend making users non-local admins. Unless you use software restrictions in Group Policy, you really can't completely prevent users from installing all pieces of software. But standard users typically have issues installing software.

As far as your one application, I would recommend taking a look at FileMon and RegMon at http://www.sysinternals.com. You can use those two utilities to monitor file and registry activity in real time. When a standard user encounters a problem, you'll know where and can make permission changes on your client to allow them to do what they need to without making them an admin. This has worked for me time and time again.

Good luck.

If you need Gpedit you can use Windows Anytime Upgrade to upgrade your Home Premium to Professional or Ultimate without losing your data and installed software.. This tutorial will help you with Anytime Upgrade: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/95744-windows-anytime-upgrade-how.html

Any third party hack to get Gpedit to Home Premium is against the End User Licence Agreement of your Windows 7 and can include procedures that might seriously harm your computer.

Just noticed on our server that I have 3 errors logging in the event viewer corresponding to the group policy that we have in effect.

The first message comes through as

Windows cannot access the file gpt.ini for GPO CN={31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9},CN=Policies,CN=System,DC=bealeandcole,DC=co,DC=uk. The file must be present at the location <\\bealeandcole.co.uk\sysvol\bealeandcole.co.uk\Policies\{31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9}\gpt.ini>. (Access is denied. ). Group Policy processing aborted.

The second one

Windows cannot query for the list of Group Policy objects. Check the event log for possible messages previously logged by the policy engine that describes the reason for this.

This is happening less than every 5 minutes and assume it's been happening way before the time I joined here.

I need to try and fix this as I'm trying to introduce WSUS with a group policy.

Thanks

Hello there,
I have a question about group policy.
I have to set up a computer in our company that will only be allowed to access one website, the company does not want the employee to surf the internet. So how would I set it up to be able to only go to the one website or domain.
The machine I am setting up is running Windows 2K and the Server version is Server 2000.
Thank you.

Using ntconfig.pol with WindowsXP

I am trying to use poledit & ntconfig.pol file to automatically set certain settings in Office2000 on an XP Professional workstation and it simply won't work.

Here's what I have
NT domain [no, not Windows2000 Active directory]
Installing Office2000 on an XP machine.

I installed the Office2000 resource kit on the XP machine and ran Poledit with templates loaded.

I saved to PDC netlogin as ntconfig.pol

When I reboot, the settings don't change.

Has anyone successfully used NT Domain System Policies with an XP workstation?

Please help me anyone.....
 

A:Group policy..Please help

So the XP machine is joined to the domain right? Can browse the network from the NT server and see the XP machine? Do you have NetBios over TCP/IP enabled on the XP machine?

First let me apologize if this is the stupidest question of all time.

Next let me introduce myself, my name is Craig and I teach in a school in Resolute Bay, Nunavut, Canada... 600 miles above the Arctic Circle. There are no techs up here to help me with my problem! I have the task of setting up our new server running windows 2003. I have NEVER setup nor worked on a server before! I have to learn everything as I go.

That being said my problem may be something that I don't see, maybe I created my users, groups or OU wrong. But the problem that I am having now is group policies.

I have installed the Group Policy Management Console snap-on (or is that snap-in). And here is what I have done.

I created an OU called school this was created right under my domain. Then I created another OU called students and another on grade 9-12.

domain
- school
- students
- grade 9-12

Then in the "active directory users and computers" I created a user in the grade 9-12 OU called test_t. This user use a profile set to \\server\profiles$\%USERNAME% this roaming profile work fine.

SO, I want to create a group policy that controls my users, so I can set proxy, home pages... you know group policy stuff!

So in the GPMC I right click "Group Policy Objects" and go to "new". Give my new policy a name "test".

Next I right click my OU students and "Link an existing GPO", and select "test" from the list.

Then I right click the GPO &qu... Read more
