    I am not sure I thought it was standard sorry it is enterprise. I went to the suggested site and purchased the ebook. I guess I have a lot of reading to do. I will check into the local group policies, but I am not sure what I am looking for. RD disabled I guess. Thanks for your help will post fix when I get it fixed. PS I would not even know what to hide if I did it would scare me. I am not oldman1939 for nothing that my real birth year. Thanks again
