Terminal Services settings in registry

When I orginally setup our Windows 2003 terminal server long ago, I believe that I disabled things such as printer redirection and clipboard in the registry of the server. Now that I want to reverse these changes, I can't seem to find out how and where to do this?

I looked in the domain group policy for the terminal server as well as the local group policy on the TS. There are no settings there. I also looked in the connection file that I give to users - clipboard and printer redirection are enabled.

Can someone give me support on how to reverse these registry settings?

So, I've added these dwords. Should the change be immediate for current users or does it apply to new users from the default profile?
