Good morning.

I'm having a rough time with AD all together.  The owner of my business wants me to configure the user's home page to go to companyweb each time IE is started.  All systems are Windows 7 Professional x64.  We do not want the user to be able to change the start page.  I'm assuming other restrictions and permanent settings are in the same place like backgrounds, program restrictions, control panel restrictions, etc.  I just can't seem to find it or how and where to create the GPO and the proper place to put it so that it applies to all users in a certain group.  I want these policies to apply to only our office staff.  Not myself or the two business owners.

I know this is cumbersom;, but, could someone walk me through step by step where and how to create the GPO and once it is created, what portion I need to go in and edit so the above changes take place on next user logon.

Thanks so much for your help.  My google searches have brought up results, but their in a manner that I don't fully understand.
