On an XP desktop to an XP desktop, I am trying to connect via remote assistance. When I try to connect it give me the error message “Access to the requested resource has been disabled by your administrator.” In a little white pop up box. Anyone know how I can turn remote assistance back on. The admin that made the images is gone and no one seems to know how it was configured. I am thinking it is in the Local security policy but I can’t seem to find it.  

Thank you

1. Start the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) Group Policy snap-in. To do this, click Start, and then click Run. In the Open box, type: gpedit.msc. Then, click OK.
2. In the Local Computer Policy\Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Remote Assistance folder, locate and double-click Offer Remote Assistance.
3. On the Offer Remote Assistance Properties dialog box, click Enable.
4. Select an option from the list to determine which of the following actions the expert users can take.• Allow helpers to only view the computer
• Allow helpers to remotely control the computer
Note This setting is for the entire group that is listed. The Offer Remote Assistance policy setting does not provide a mechanism that lets one group of users view the computer of the novice user, and also lets a second group of users view and control the computer of the novice user. There can be only one expert group.
5. Click Show. The Show Contents dialog box opens.
6. Click Add to add the Domain Users and Domain User Groups.
7. Click OK to close the Show Contents dialog box, and then click OK to close the Offer Remote Assistance Properties dialog box.
8. Quit the MMC Group Policy snap-in.

what if the 'System' branch is not there? The only folder inside 'Administrative Templates' for me is 'Windows Components'.
