Group Policy ADM/X: Myths and Facts – What Microsoft Never Told you (and you need to know)

A lot of times people ask me: “Jeremy, when I use ADMX files, I find that it seems to work for a while, then just ‘stop’ working. Have you seen this?”

Or, another way people ask me is: “I want to ensure my users settings are locked down, so I created an ADMX file. But it doesn’t work the way I expect.”

So, if you want to see what the problem with ADMX files is (and one way to make you settings truly enforced) I’ve got a video demonstrating the problem (and a solution).

In short: ADMX files can’t prevent user shenanigans (but there is a free / commercial tool) which I show in the video which can make it a reality.

Here’s a video to show you exactly what I’m talking about:

PS: I wrote some whitepapers which I think you’ll like too. I don’t want to give it all away here, but there’s some “deep, dark secrets” in there which most administrators don’t want to admit (even to themselves). They can be found here (https://www.policypak.com/itwhitepapers). Download one or all of them.
