Hi i have just enabled and forced a group policy to stop programs like messenger running (on win 2003). to do this i went to the domain policy editor and run this through: User Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\
and the setting:"Don't run specified Windows application" in the group policy editor. it seems to work fine apart from 1 pc can still run messenger and limewire even though i keep refreshing the policy.] And sometimes peolple can still get on messenger unless they close it and try to reopen the program then it wont open.
I suppose this is 2 questions really.
1. why does the group policy apply to most machines apart from 1 (it is inside the domain)
2 how can some people intermittently get on the restricted program???
i have heard that you can set a software restriction policy but i cant seem to work it out
any ideas anyone, its annoying me
