Examples of Group policies to lock down laptops in the field

By gdabreo ·
We have a sales force of about 60 people using Thinkpad T60s. Currently we are having to rebuild these units every week because they get infected with spyware.I would like the users to have limited accounts with certain lockdowns so that they cannot install software and virulent malware cannot infect the system...any suggestions.

Can't block malware with GP

You could lock down the ability to install programs. But blocking malware, trojans, worms, etc. will need to be done with protective software, such as ad-aware or one of the larger security suites from McAfee or Symantec.

Unless you want to completely block the ability of the user to browse the web.

Microsoft has a lot of GPO Scenarios. Various Scenarios are listed out here...

You can download the CommonScenarios.msi installation package, which includes document and supporting files, from the Microsoft Download Center.

Let me know if you need further help
