Yes, that should do it. I would back up that file first. Also, just so you 
know, when you change the file directly this way, the GPO won't know that it 
has been updated, and thus won't re-apply to target computers right away. So, 
if you want, just go into the GPO using GP editor, after changing this file, 
and tweak a setting on/off to update the GPO version #. That will jump-start 
its use by clients.
