We currently have the HelpAssistant account disabled on our domain workstations (XP SP3) We would like to start using Remote Assistance so need to enable the account. Is there a way of doing it globally using Group Policy (Windows 2003)?

I don't believe that there is a method using a GPO to keep the HelpAssistant account enabled at all times. Why would you want this anyways? Having this account enabled create a huge secuirty risk and would not recommend this.

When you initiate a Remote Desktop Assistant session, this account becomes enabled. Once you are finished with the session the HelpAssistant account is disabled until the next use.

hope this helps~!
