Im having a very hard time creating a custom template ( *adm) fopr a windows
2000 Group policy object, the goal is to disable the follwing registry key
for windows 2000 users

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\Enable Browser
Extensions
yes to enable, no to disable

THe following language does give a new entry in the GPO however it is empty
and there is no entry to disable or enable

any thoughts would be very helpfull

Thanks
S

CATEGORY !!InternetExplorernew



POLICY !!Enablebrowserextensions
EXPLAIN !!Enablebrowserextensions_Explain
VALUENAME "Enablebrowserextensions"
VALUEON NUMERIC 1
VALUEOFF NUMERIC 2
KEYNAME "Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\"
END POLICY
END CATEGORY
[strings]

In the group policy console select this key (or administrative templates
in general) and then choose from the menu View -> Filtering -> clear
checkbox "Only show policy settings that can be fully managed"

And then enjoy Your new GPO option :)

OK here is an update after creating the new template an importing it to the
GPO I was successfully able to apply it to the local pc however it was not
taking effect on networked users as should. Im guessng its a permissions
issue of some sort. ideas?


also can anyone tell me what a red icon next to the entry in the gpo means?
all of the others have a blue icon?

Thanks
