Thanks to Darren Mar-Elia, I was able to figure out how to create a security template for my computer's group policy settings with the MMC. It's a pretty simple template, only three items: Unicode] Unicode=yes [Version] signature="$CHICAGO$" Revision=1 [System Access] EnableGuestAccount = 1 [Registry Values] MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetControlLsaEveryoneIncludesAnonymous=4,1 [Privilege Rights] SeDenyNetworkLogonRight = I would like to apply the template from the command line, so I run secedit as follows: secedit /configure /db ".VREnterpriseSetup.inf" This errors out. I get an ambiguous error in the log file: Friday, January 18, 2008 9:42:14 AM Error 1208: An extended error has occurred. Error opening C:Documents and SettingsastibichDesktopDCOM SetupVREnterpriseSetup.inf. ----Configuration engine was initialized with one or more errors.---- ----Un-initialize configuration engine... I've tried many variations on the command line: adding '/areas', trying to use '/cfg' (not sure yet what that does). I feel like I'm missing something obvious here... Aaron
