Hi everyone, wanted to ask the windows guru here on how to perform something.. I remember in the windows XP days, you can use regedit to prevent access to the network properties for your local network adapters (say for example, to prevent users from messing with the ip addresses and so forth). I have tried googling and tried several so called ways and none of them works. Is it possible to do so in windows 7 using regedit instead of GPO? p.s :- I would also like the ways to use regedit to block network properties access in windows XP if you know how too, Thanks..
