Policy Register Administration Class W2000 (Views: 100)

Problem/Question/Abstract:

There are many registry settings that affect system policy on the local machine. This class encompasses several of them into a single class. Policy registry entries can be changed individually (via properties) or multiple (via EnableStates and DisableStates) methods. You, of course have to have permissions to write to the Registry.

Properties

TaskManagerEnabled    : Enable/Disable W2000 task manager from popping up.

LockComputerEnabled   : Enable/Disable "Lock Computer" button from Ctrl-Alt-Del Dialog Form.

ChangePasswordEnabled : Enable/Disable "Change Password" button from Ctrl-Alt-Del Dialog Form.

LogOffEnabled         : Enable/Disable "Log Off" button from Ctrl-Alt-Del Dialog Form.

ShutDownEnabled       : Enable/Disable "Shut Down" button from Ctrl-Alt-Del Dialog Form.

RegistryToolsEnabed   : Enable/Disable access to Registry Tools such as  REGEDIT.EXE etc.

DispPropertiesEnabled : Enable/Disable Display Properties dialog box.

Methods

EnableStates  : Enable multi states by passing a set of TRegPolicy

DisableStates : Disable multi states by passing a set of  TRegPolicy

Example

var
PolicyAdm: TPolicyAdmin;

begin
PolicyAdm := TPolicyAdmin.Create;
PolicyAdm.TaskManagerEnabled := false;

if PolicyAdm.LogOffEnabled then
label1.Caption := 'True'
else
label1.Caption := 'False';

PolicyAdm.DisableStates([rpTaskManager,
rpShutDown, rpLogOff]);
PolicyAdm.Free;
end.
