Hello,

I would like to apply the same Mouse Property settings & one custom Screensaver to 30+ existing to all Windows XP Pro SP2 account using Windows 2003 Server Active Directory

This PC has Windows XP Service Pack 2
A generic MS PS/2 Mouse

The mouse settings I would like are:
Enable pointer shadow: disabled
Enhance pointer precision: disabled
Hide pointer while typing: disabled
Select a pointer speed: 6

The Screensaver is a custom screensaver that has been loaded on the pc.
I want that screensaver to be used by all users.

How can this be done?

Thanks for the help in advance!
