I need a step-by-step on how would one use the .adm template from the following download to stop all users in the domain from installing SP2 for a person who has never used the GPO editor in 2000 Server.

Try the following but select the domain object instead of local computer


To start Group Policy, click Start and then click Run. In the Open box, type MMC and then click OK.
On the Console menu, click Add/Remove Snap-in. In the Add/Remove Snap-in dialog box, add Group Policy. Under the Group Policy Object, select Local Computer, and then click Finish.
Select Administrative Templates from either the Computer Configuration branch or the User Configuration branch. These two nodes of the Group Policy tree are parallel to the Default Computer and Default User policy profiles in the System Policy Editor.
Right-click the Administrative Templates branch, and then select All Tasks.
Select Add/Remove Templates.
Click Add.
Load any or all of the ADM templates

Or go to AD users and computers right click on the domain go to properties go to group policy double click on default domain policy. go to admin template right click chose add template and go from there

Now once its done your going to have to find the setting for SP2 it will be there under software settings I think.


After you load the template look in the MMC you just made

The template was loaded in Administrative Templates > Windows Components > WindowsUpdate ... In the template's properties, I enabled the policy. Is there anything else that needs to be done? Does this setting take place immediately?
