Hi
My users once they put 'regedit in the search bar it simply opens up registry editor.  Where in group policy I can prohibit them from opening up registry editor but at the same time I would like them to install programs which needs the registry (so simply making the command regedit not work for them) in group policy.  where IN GPO can I do this.
My domain is server 2008 x32 bit.
