Cannot change Screensaver settings once enabled on GPO

Last Modified: 2015-07-13
I enabled a screensaver GPO policy, but did not prevent the user from changing, infect I have clicked disabled on the prevent. From some reason no matter what I do, but those settings cannot be changed on the PC itself. If I remove the GPO completely then I can change it. Its weird once it is enabled (any settings) then it is auto disabled and cannot be changed on the PC? Is there another way around except creating multiple GPOs for different user groups?
