How to lock the NT WS Desktop Icons

By patrickfahey ·
I'm building an image to install 50-60 desktops in a classroom environment and need a way to "forget" student changes to the Desktop.

I've tried the registry hack NoSaveSettings = 1 and it's not working.

I'm current through SP6.

Any easy ideas?

BTW, no money for shareware.

Pat

If you have the system partition formated in NTFS you may try to restrict the permissions to read/execute in the All Users desktop folder.

Patrick, we need to know what server you are using, and what utility you are using to push out the images. I keep three images on a seperate partition on our boxes to restore with using Partition Magic. Both PM and GHOST have the ability to push outimages to a selected box from the admin machine, is this what you are doing?? We are to assume all the machines are running nt4.0 sp6a (hope you are using 6a and not 6, 6 was dropped by M$)?? Do you have the resource kit??
let us know.............let us know
