Group Policies

This article contains links for setting Group Policies for Windows 2000 servers.

The Basic Problem
When installing updates - controls may not register on workstations without administrator rights.

Once a user logs on, the group policy can automatically install new software, updates etc. This works with Windows 2000 and Windows 2003 servers and Windows 2000 & XP clients.
