Gpedit Problems in Safe Mode

By support ·
We are running XP SP2 on IBM Thinkcentre PC's. We have locked down several sections off the PC using GPedit including blocking access to display in control panel.We have a problem where we have to go into Safe mode\Gpedit.msc\user config\admin templates\control panel\display and change "Remove display in control panel" to not configured. After we have done this we are still not able to access the display control panel. Recieve error "Your system administrator have disabled access to the display control panel" All Locks in GPedit have been checked and are turned off. If we boot to XP in Normal mode and do the same we can access display just not in safe mode. Any Ideas ?

The only thing you have access to in Safe mode is local policy. Group Policy from the domain will always over ride this. From the sound of it you have this particular policy setup for the machine.

Try temporarily moving the PC out of the container where this policy is linked. Go to a command prompt and type gpupdate to refresh policy. You should now have access to display properties. When you are doine wih what you are doing move the PC back to it's regular container in AD Users and Computers and refresh policy with GPUPDATE at the command prompt again.
