    Prevent programs from suggesting changes to my default search provider

    HI

    Please could someone help. We have set the default search provider in group policy using a customized adm but ever time the students and staff go to google the site attempts to change the search provider.

    Have anyone got a fix for this that I can deploy through group policy.

    I know I can do it manually by putting a tick in the box next to Prevent programs from suggesting changes to my default search provider but with over 350 machine this would be a huge job.

    This is probably a user setting rather than machine setting. If there's nothing under the user GPOs, It may be worth tracking the registry changes made when that box is checked then pushing that change out to users via a login script?
