As best i can find, there are only 4 items that can be controlled with GPO.

They are detailed here.

Hi thnaks for that but I need to know where in group policy to set the restrictions or if there is an adm available that some one has created, sorry I know that sounds like I am being lazy but I would rather use an ADM someone has created and tested than create and test an ADM on a live network potentially causing issues and creating problems.
