Use attached Administrative Template, import it to GPO and apply to computers. Reboot them and it should work fine.
Change file extension from .adm.txt to .adm

or use GPP (Group Policy Preference) if you have Windows 7 / 2008 in your environment. For XP clients you need to install CSE (Client Side Extension) first.
