Registry editing

Long story short: domain controlled workstation, wise guy admin hid the screensaver page in Display Properties, started publishing some uplifting/ motivational stuff, i want my old clock screensaver back. Tried Regedit and editing the key...couldn't save it. Is there a way around it?

Re: Registry editing

your admin is probably using group policies which means you can't manually edit the things being controlled by policies.

Through the Command Line

You could also use the command line if you prefer it. When using the command line, it should be noted that you have to specify the scope of the results. To find all the policies that are applied to your user account, you would use the following command:
gpresult /Scope User /v
Then if you scroll down, you will see the the Resultant Set Of Policies for User section.
