Policy keys usually reside in HKLM or HKCU under Software\Policies or
Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies. Anything that an
administrative template (.adm) configures outside of these areas are
referred to as preferences because they won't be "undone" when you
simply unlink the GPO that originally configured them. This is what we
all lovingly refer to as "tattooing" something in the registry.

Security policy works the same way in that to "undo" something you
actually have to enforce the opposite setting.

Subject: [gptalk] GPO Question

When creating a policy via the GUI and not from custom ADM, which part
of the settings that get tattooed in the registry? I was asked that
question today and I am sure about the answer? Any help would be
appreciated.

Thanks,
Jean
