    Google is your fiend...

    Just remember that this only changes for new profiles.. as it says.

    I _thought_ there was a setting in Group Policies to switch this off, but I don't have access to any Windows Servers from home anymore....

    Actually, doing a search for "sticky keys" made me quite nervous about what I would find....

    ive just created a reg eidt patch that applies it in seconds but will mean going round all machines, or rolling a fresh image with the patch on.

    Or, you could create a script that imports this registry file...

    ...and then run this at startup (or logon).

    Re: Blocking Sticky Keys

    I have added this to our logon vbs script so you can set it out like this.

    Dim OShell
    dim fso : set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    dim wshShell : Set wshShell = Createobject("WScript.Shell")

    'Turns off StickyKeys
    wshShell.RegWrite "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Accessibility\StickyKeys\Flags", 506, "REG_SZ"
