Hello All,

I have deployed a couple of Win 7 desktops on my domain and need the end users to be able to change display settings without being local admins. They currently see the following menssage:

Some settings are managed by your system administrator.

I have checked the group policies and find all of the control panel and display entries "not configured". I understand that if the settings such as "hide display settings" are enabled that will prevent the user from changing settings. I have tried "not configured" and "disabled" and see no change in behavior.
