Q

Setting all end user settings to be uniform

All of the clients on my network are Windows 2000. How can I use GP to change the end users' current settings so that they are all the same? I have attempted this but fonts, background colors and mouse pointers are all still set to whatever the user last set them to.
There are some things that even Group Policy cannot accomplish. For this task, it almost sounds like you want a "Mandatory Profile." A Mandatory Profile will "fix" specific users to have the same look and feel on the desktop.
