    How to disable computer configuration part of group policy

    I think I am going mad. This should be easy. When right clicking a GPO there should be a 'status' option. There is no 'status' option. I seem to be unable to disable either the computer or the user configuration. Server 2003 R2 and MMC 3 version 5.2 R2. All suggestions gratefully received!

    I think you need to click on the GPO in the list, NOT where it is being applied. Eg we have an install policy under "year 6" and if I look there there is no status, but if I look in the list of GPOs (usually at the bottom), I can right click and see the status. Hope that helps

    Select GPO
    Select Details tab
    Choose "Computer Configuration disabled" on drop down for GPO Status

    If that's what you mean?

    Thank you both.

    I was indeed in the wrong place! One of those (becoming too frequent) days.
