    disable content advisor using GPO?

    Hi,

    OK made a big mistake of looking at using content advisor for students, little did I know what a big bag of mince idea that was!!! first off the ratings aren't installed on most of the machines so errors are all over the place, also discoverd that it applies the content advisor to everybody once a student has logged onto it (teachers, admins, everybody).

    I thought Oh well, cancel that idea, OH NO says Microsoft, I'm not going to let you do that that easily.

    So, anyboady got any idea of how to undo the damage I have done?!!!!!

    Is there a way to turn off content advisor on client machines through GPO?

    Ta

    Re: disable content advisor using GPO?

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\policies\Ratings\.Default] "Enabled"=dword:00000001

    I think the reg key above sets the conent advisor. You will need to create a custom adm to control this through GPO.

    Alternatively you could put export the fixed reg frag to the netlogon share and run a startup script import it on each client.
