Hello guys
Im sure you can give me a hand with this. I neet to create a few gpo but i cant find the place to configure policies

1.      I need to forbid the installation of any kind of software by users.
2.      I need to forbid sharing folders, only domains admin can do it.
3.      I need to reconfigure Automatic updates to use WSUS.

Im using Windows Server 2003.
Thanks in advanced.

    You will need to familiarize yourself with the options in GP editor.  There are hundreds of them.  You will find many of the most useful ones under Administrative Templates.
