How do you prevent users from changing the time on their desktop or where ever they logon?

Hello,

I want to prevent users from changing their time on their desktop. I just sync my DC to a NTP server. How can I do this within GPO? I also would like to know how to test if my NTP server is working and all desktops are synced up to correct time?

Thanks,

I got to that point, but how to do set it up? If i define these policy settings, it ask what users or groups I want, but it seems like the users/groups I select allows for them to make changes. So I'm a little confused. I want to stop users from changing the time.
