    Per computer seems to be the only way of doing it.
    The image i posted above, is that the correct settings for pushing out these reg keys?

    Hmm still struggling.
    I beleive i set the policy correct now but it doesnt seem to be working and I get this error in event viewer

    The computer 'Attributes' preference item in the 'Test {47886ED1-BAE4-4CD8-8C35-13099E3BD48B}' Group Policy object did not apply because it failed with error code '0x80070005 Access is denied.' This error was suppressed.
    Why would access be denied?
    Also if I try to manualy change this key value to a9400100 I get an error saying 'cannot edit attributes. Error writing the value's new content'

    Can you give us a screenshot of the two pages of the GPP policy?

    Initial thoughts: Where is it getting the name "Test" from? Are you trying to run this under the users security context? User or machine preference?

    Hi,
    Sure.
    The name 'Test' is the name of the GPO. I created a new separate policy and named it test whilst i'm testing it.
    Here's a capture of the policy

    I'm fairly confident that it's set up correctly after reading the links i've been given.
    The error I see in event manager is this

    Have you tried using HKLM instead of HKCR?

    Code:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{031E4825-7B94-4dc3-B131-E946B44C8DD5}\ShellFolder]
    "Attributes"=dword:b090010d

    I'm being silly and making more work.
    The main reason I was looking to find an alternative way of achieving this was because I was hoping to set the policy Per User instead of Per Computer. That doesn’t seem possible, so I can just go back to using the .adm file method that works perfectly for me because I understand how to set it up correctly

    Thanks to all though. The help is much appreciated and it's always nice to know more than one way of achieving a goal (Even if I’m unable to get it working!)
