How do I change the screen resolution on a computer with the display settings panel disabled?

In some of the public computers at my college, the computers have had basically all priviliges restricted.  Well, they installed these snazzy new widescreen flat panels, yet they're stretching a resolution of 1024x768.  On the rare occasion I have to work with this, it strains my eyes.

Are there any utilities out there that allow you to change the screen resolution without the use of the display settings control panel?

Ask the IT administrators to set the correct resolution to those PC's.

I did and they won't.  Is there any way I can do it myself?

No. They are responsible for that and if they have blocked this you can't change it yourself. Maybe you should contact their superiors. It doesn't make sense not to use the proper resolution for displays.

Of course I can do it myself.  All I have to do is go into the group policy editor and disable the settings that disable the display settings control panel, and then change it.

But I want an easier way.  They're stubborn and refuse to change it.

If your on a domain and the PC is logged on as a domain member like I understand this PC is, then you can't change the settings in the group policy editor if you don't have the necessary privileges.

Well, I do anyways.

I guess I have the necessary privileges.

Isn't there just like a little tool to change the screen resolution?
