    There's an ADM template for controlling the XP accessability settings, including stickykeys, in the Shared Computer Toolkit.

    This is a PITA here as well..but NGFL are iffy about disabling it, due to accessibility requirements and guidelines.

    We're living with it for now..

    Is it possible to extract that and use it with GPMC without having the toolkit installed on your clients?

    I'm doing that right now Chris. Unfortunately the MSI doesn't unrar like most do, so I'm about to install it on a dummy PC to get at the ADM.

    I must admit that I uninstall all the accessibility features due to their annoying nature. However, we do not have any kids that require their use and I can always install them at a later date if needs must.

    Interesting:

    The SCTSettings.adm Group Policy template included with the Shared Computer Toolkit also includes the ability to set idle and mandatory logoff timers, if the Toolkit is installed on your computers
    We may be deploying the toolkit next Summer just for that functionality alone.

    Sorry, Geoff. I can't find that policy at all. When I import the adm, there is a whole new section of policies under "All Shared Computer Toolkit Restrictions" but not that. Any ideas?

    Hmm I wonder if you can slap a software restriction policy on the component that runs.....

    I've just exported the registry entry - HKCU\control panel\accessibility and going to merge that back in. It won't stop people from changing things if they want to, but at least at every log on the settings will be back to default.
