Is there any way to reset all Group Policies to the default settings on a
stand alone W2K Pro or XP Pro?

Thanks

    Reapply default security settings
    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/windowsserver2003/library/ServerHelp/dd766d48-ed09-45a3-aa5e-cf0a64a7fb88.mspx

    or in CMD:
    secedit /configure /db %temp%\temp.mdb /cfg “%systemroot%\inf\defltwk.inf

    Registry Settings made by gpedit.msc insode the administrative
    template can only be deleted if they are full managed. If you
    have inttegrated selfmade adm templates, then you have to reset
    them manually.
    Full managed policys can be deleted by deleting die *.pol
    files inside %systemroot%\system32\GroupPolicy\Machine
    and %systemroot%\system32\GroupPolicy\User

    Nope. A template is only a pattern/stencil. It is only a GUI
    that enables you to make settings, but is has nothing to do
    with the effektiv settings inside the *.pol file, where the
    changes are done.

    If you change the template, 2 things can happen:
    If you update a temlate (eg from XP to XPSP2), all settings can still
    be done, there are a lot or more settings to be possible. The
    Template is cumulative and like a "superset" of policies.

    If you import an older tmeplate, or a manually reduced one, you
    will not be able to "see" all of your settings, but they
    are still there.
