I need to be able to disable the ability to create passwords to protect identities in Outlook Express.  I have 40 identities associated with rooms which students stay in.  Ex.  1a, 1b, 2a, 2b...etc  Some students decide to be mailicious and password protect the identity preventing the next student who comes for training to use this box.  I then have to go into the registry and delete the identity and recreate it each time.

What OS?
Have you looked at TweakUI as a possible solution?


The enviroment I am in has very strict rules in regards to using 3rd party products.  There must be a registry key with a value that just needs to be changed.  

What about disabling  Users can customize their preferences and desktop settings under user profiles? (not sure what os oe version you are using)
