    Is it possible to make it so no one can change the screensaver?

    edit - using win2k (FAT32 formatted drive)

    Enter command prompt and type convert c: /fs:ntfs

    Then do what he just typed.

    I thought that FAT32 just wasn't as secure as NTFS - didn't know it prevented you from using policies :confused:

    As far as I know it doesn't prevent you from enforcing group policies.

    I'm just confused over why he would have a FAT32 partition when running 2000 Pro.

    I don't worry myself over those decisions - the fact he explicitly said FAT32 means he has to have a reason.

    However misguided it is... (;
