I am on the beg for a really locked down student GPO for for windows 7 to get us started I have just created a Central Store for Group Policy Administrative Templates using this How to create a Central Store for Group Policy Administrative Templates in Window Vista and I have now realised just how many setting there are. What I am looking for is a basic set to get up and running with so the little darlings don't create hell when they come back come to think of it the students could be just as bad .
I know this is a big ask but I am sure I will pass back the favor at some time.

Any chance you could send me the Win 7 GPO? Just starting to look at Win 7 on our domain.
FN-GM I'd love to see what you've got for this. Thanks.
Sorry only just spotted this. PM me with your email i will send it.
Hey Fn-Gm I would love to see this, I am having issues locking down stuff there so much too, this would be a great help
Remember it's all good getting others to send you GPO's, but I strongly recommend you only use it for guidance. You will learn so much more by going through all the settings your self, and this way you will know exactly how your clients are being locked down and what setting effects what for when you need to change it.
It can take a little bit of time and be a bit frustrating testing settings to see if they achieve what you want, but it's defiantly worth it in my opinion.

I've found the problem is not locking it down, it's unlocking it afterwards.
I've just re-build my GPO's for my prep school. I could have jsut given them the senior school one's and tweeked them to cover the couple of differences however it was usefull for a number of reasons. Whislt I copied most of the setting by going through it I found a couple of new things I hadn't spotted before. I also found the fix to a couple of items that I had in the past been struggling to resolve. I aslo found that by only putting in the things that were relevant it let me remove a lot of obsolete keys. I actually think the logon is much quicker even though the prep school networking is much worse.
It might seem like a time consuming PITA but going through the whole thing youself is probably best in the long run. Especially as some things can no make sense without explanation. in my case you might wonnder why I have a security policy blocking executables from drive letters E and F. Unless you know that I'm also using USBDLM to force memry sticks to only use letters E and F this looks odd.
Thanks Fn-Gm will have a play. Do you redirect the other libraries? I'm having a nightmare with them, read and tried most of the posts on edugeek. Guess I'll get it sorted at some point.
I'm the same. Got 15 RM one's coming tomorrow with Windows 7, just set up 1 HP machine with Windows 7 on. Tested Win 7 a few weeks ago and got what I thought was OK. Just need to redirect documents now, and stop the beggers adding folders to desktop
Any chance me too buddy?
