Hey guys i change things in my group policy and nothing is being applied. Im trying to lock a machine down and everything was fine and dandy until a program like DEEPFREEZE needs to be able to restart the machine. since local applies to everyone this didn't work to well in my admin account. I have an old image prior to messing around with it so I can always restore. But no matter what I do I cant get my local policy to kick in.

Its like its not updating the policy. I cant get my reboot in start menu back

Computer is part of a domain. but even when logged in under a local admin I dont get my settings back or even applied for that matter.

Do you have any policy that is denying your group or local policy that is being carried forward?

And does the machine (I should say user) has local admin rights?

Yes the user has local admin and is able to edit the policy

no even when I disable EVERYTHING nothing flips back

Ok my bad so the policy is being applied. I just tried it.

I forgot I tweaked the c:\windows\system32\Group Policy Folder to not include my admin account.

But still my restart shutdown hibernate etc isn't coming back and it should because its all set to not configured.

Back in the days of XP, there was a setting that some machines freaked (and hibernation was almost impossible) if it was enabled...I'll look and see if there is somthing similar in W7

Good work!

 because you are talking about the option being missing from the menu correct?
I didn't stumble on that yet...but I believe I know what you were describing.

Thanks though!
