Hi James,

In answer to your questions:
1) Yes, AppSense Environment Manager would speed this up, since it's much
faster then scripts or GPO's concerning logon settings
This is mostly because EM executes stuff in parallel instead of 1 by 1
(for instance)

2) What I would do in that case:
- Log in with a user that gets these GPO settings
- Make a (or more) .reg files of the settings in questions by using the
export function from regedit
- Import these .reg files in AppSense EM and edit if needed
I know that .reg files can be imported without problems, not sure if that
is easy to do with a GPO
Altho, if these GPO registry settings are held in a (custom) .adm file,
those kind of files (.adm) can also be imported in EM
Personally I prefer the registry method though
