My new xp sp3 classroom computers do not contain all the gpedit folders I am used to using. My school district requires the vendor to image new computers with certain alterations. I am told only an administrator on the "server" can modify the missing settings. SteadyState allows me to lock the Control Panel but not prevent changes to background/wallpaper. I had a response from Sean Zhu about SteadyState but that mesage did not address the missing Administrative Templates. Can it be that my district altered the original Microsoft Windows package? Is there a way I can install the missing gp templates at the local level?
Hi Stephen, what do you mean by missing administrative templates? Windows SteadyState provides a template "SCTSettings.adm" which names as "All Windows SteadyState templates" in group policy and it does not contain a gp regarding background or wallpaper. If you refer to gp included in Windows XP, you can post the issue to Windows XP forum via the following link:
