That doesn't sound right. If it is in HKCU the user should (by default) be able to modify it. From: gptalk-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:gptalk-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Smith, Brad Sent: Tuesday, March 11, 2008 10:49 AM To: gptalk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [gptalk] User Hive settings set during logon.... All, Is there a way to configure permissions on registry key in the HKCU hive? I want to run a startup script that modifies a key in this hive from the user portion of the GPO, but the user only has read only access to it by default. Any ideas?
