Screensaver Security

By Chadg ·
My compny wants to impliment a screensaver timeout policy. How can I make the screensaver tab accessible to the end users, yet have the password protected box, and the timeout box greyed out (so the users can not modify the ScreenSaverIsSecure registry value, or the ScreenSaveTimeOut setting). In other words allow users to choose their own screensaver, without giving them the ability to change the timeout, or password protected values?

We are on an NT 4 domain, and I need to do this on NT4.0 WKS, 2KPro, and XP Pro.

User Configuration, Administrative Templates, Control Panel, Display. Set what you want to lock down, leave the rest.

I have been using the GPO a lot recently, and just totally overlooked those 2 values. I was looking at other aspects for other reasons.

Thanks again,
