How 2 Disable Screensaver password option

I manage computers onboard ships travelling worldwide, with crew changing every now and then. How can I prevent anyone from enabling a password in a screensaver?

I run Kixtart logon script, so a registry setting is preffered.

TIA,
Geir

Run the System Policy Editor (POLEDIT.EXE - you may have to install it from \Admin on the W95 CD):

File - Open Registry - Local User - Control Panel - Display - Restrict Display Control Panel - Hide Screen Saver Page.

Save the Registry.Takes effect immediately - no reboot necessary.

While you're in there,you may find other 'Restrictions' that will help you keep order on the high seas - especially 'No Save Settings on Exit'.

I would use poledit.
From the Win95 CD admin\apptools\poledit and run poledit.exe
go to "File"--"Open Registry"--"Local User"--"Control Panel"
"Display".
Put a check in "Restrict Display Control Panel" and then check "Hide Screen Saver Page"
If you want a screen saver to be used, set it up before you do this and they won't be able to change it or set a password. You'll have to do this with each user policy IE. logon as user and go through the steps above

Thank you all. I guess Poledit is the way to go. But now I have to read more help-files (I *was* hoping for short regisrty setting), but this will pay off in the long run if I can prevent unauthorized changes in setup.
