Well, I do have some experience in creating .adm files. As Microsoft lacks a lot of settings in the default GPO's, I got a lot of hands on experience creating .ADM files. I used the following for reference:
- Writing Custom ADM Files for System Policy Editor
- How to write custom .adm and .admx administrative template files ...
- How to create a custom .adm file
Also looking in the already existing .adm files (not the ADMX files, those are in the new 2008/vista/7 format), gives a good idea on how .adm files work and/or are build.
Futhermore there is a tool reg2adm, which takes some of the work out of your hands, but still needs a lot of afterwards editing to get a working .ADM.
I also look in the registy to see in what value the registry changes when I apply a setting.
And of course you can export registry settings using regedit. You then use the reg file to convert to .adm, with reg2adm.

Many thanks to The Prutser for the ADM. We've had pupils playing with the Accessibility Option keys for some while and mostly this hasn't bothered anyone much, but recently we've noticed that they're using this strategy to (at least partly) circumvent the SynchronEyes blocking screen. The Prutser's ADM is just what I was looking for. I've created ADMs before (to force the internationalisation settings and to configure the per-user map settings in Memory Map), but I don't do it often enough to be fluent.
Does anyone know if the high contrast and sticky keys can be disabled when the machines are sitting on thje CTRL+ALT+DEL screen. We are using Windows 7 Enterprise also would these custom ADM's work?
