We would like to use Group Policy to disable the above mentioned setting. I have been researching this idea, and see many entries suggesting that this should be automatically disabled because of the fact we are looking at a Domain situation. I have also run across postings that quote the Microsoft Note that says this is so, along with testamonials that this is not necessarily disabled, regardless of Domain/Workgroup configuration. None of the articles I found were more recent than 2005, so I'm wondering if there is any updated information somewhere that I am missing? Any feedback welcome, thanks!
