    Group Policy preventing too much!

    Hi all,

    I've just set up a new suite at a school and I've got a unusual problem. I've set all the group policies so the kids can't do anything they shouldn't be able to, but here's the weird thing; you can open Internet Explorer, My Documents and Printers and Faxes which is fine, but when you try and close them again you get the message that 'This operation has been cencelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator.' and the window remains open. What have I done?! Whatever it is, I've not done it before!

    Setup is Windows Server 2003 R2 and Windows XP SP3 workstations.

    Any help would be greatfully recieved.

    Thank you

    Stuart

    Policy could be corrupted, try creating another one with a limited subset of your lockdown to check if that works when substituted for the full blown one, if so you may need to recreate the policy manually by copying values to make a fresh one to apply.

    Whilst corruption is always an option on these things, this is a brand new policy I created this morning and then tried immediately after it's creation. If all else fails I will have to do re-create the policy turning on the settings a few at a time and seeing if the problems reappears at some point.

    Found it!

    Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Internet Explorer -> Browser Menus -> File Menu: Disable closing the browser and Explorer windows

    There's me assuming it would just remove it from the menu. Should have read it better.
