I'm really struggling with this problem and hope as usual that you guys can help.
Group policy set for a group of users.
SBS 2003
Administrative Template
Control Panel/Display
password protect sreensaver - disabled
prevent chaning wallpaper - enabled
screen saver - disabled
screen saver timeout - disabled

I have also set in the registry - control panel display but this is under administrator as gpo is set to no access to desktop control panel etc
screensaveactive 0
scrnsave.exe 0
screensavetimeout 0

how can I stop the screensaver kicking in on the restricted user after 15mins

Thank you
