I have a W2K3 Active Directory environment. I want all the domain computers to have a 24 hour time format. Is there any way thru which I could force all the machines to have a particular time display format?

This is for individual machines.

Is there a way in which I can set it automatically for all machines logging into domain? I want to enforce this policy for all computers.
