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:
