Start and E

I have installed some software that has the ability to disable the cntl+alt+del key, and also disable the Start button. I can turn on and off these features at will. but it also seems to have disabled the Start+E and Start+F - plus the other shortcut keys. Is there somewhere in the reg. that I can enable those keys again, while still allowing the software I use to limit access to the Start button and cntl+alt+del key.

I am afraid that by using this software to disable the start button it has completely disabled the start button and all the built in shortcuts using the Windows Key for the Start button. Unless the program you are using has specific settings for this then it looks like it is an all or nothing situation.

You might want to take a look at the Group policies by running

Start > Run gpedit.msc

Of course to do this you will need to enable the Start button

When it opens migrate to Local Computer Policy > User Configuation > Administrative Templates > Start Menu & Taskbar. Look in the window pane on the right and you will see a list of things you can configure for the Start button. Something there might help and also you might find by using the Group Policy that you might not need to use that software for the Start button.

Computer Policy > User Configuation > Administrative Templates > System > Logon/Logoff and you will see several things there that you can use to limit the user to what they can do while logged on to the system. You might find using this Group Policy interface that you may not even need that software you are using. :>)

OK...now I did something stupid...I was playing around with gpedit.msc and I removed the run command from the start menu....How do I get it back? so that I can run gpedit.msc and put things back to thier original config.

OK, when using gpedit.msc the settings for S+E and the others come up as "not config", and when I "enabled" them, it removed the feature from my Start menu.

Try again folks.
