  • I want my CDROM back :)

    Hi,
    I used the .adm file from microsoft sitehttp://support.microsoft.com/kb/555324 to have cdrom and usbdrives blocked for the users, for testing purpose I applied that GPO on my machine and effectivly I got myself into a situation where my cdwriter is disabled after applying this policy. Now I wanted to get it back, U may ask to reverse the policy and reapply it, Yes I did that but its not enabling, any clues or suggestions?.
    oh I also tried gpupdate /force, but no luck

      From the above KB
      This template is considered a preference rather than a true policy and will tattoo the registry of client computers with its settings. If this template is moved out of scope of the Group Policy which applies it, the registry changes it makes will remain. If you wish to reverse the settings made by this template, simply reverse the options to re-enable the drivers.
      Dotfish, are you sure you reversed the settings?
      Could you post your config?

        Yes I tried that first but after reading that the settings wont be changed if you remove the policy or move to another OU, I tried to reverse the policy.

        Thanx
