Hi,

Trying to edit the ssmarque.scr settings via GPO and the below link touches on it, but I cannot see how to get to the defined settings in the screenshot (also from the posting below). I have changed the filtering in GPMC and this does not alter the view so I presume there is another ADM I have to import for these settings?

This is great and I have created the ADM and added it to the GPO and configured all the settings....but they do nothing?
I then tried disasbling the default screensaver settings incase this affected the newly imported ADM .. but nothing???
I have all the settings and looks very pretty, but does absolutely nothing to the Users settings when they log on????

Tahnks in advance!
