    I have created a Roaming user Profile on a Windows NT server. The Client is Windows NT Workstation Ver 4. The Roaming profile is working great, but how do I make this Profile Compulsory for users and stop them making any changes to it.

    Rename the USER.DAT to USER.MAN

    Cheers

    I am using user.man at a high school. Stored in home directories for each student. Should make sure that you set permissions on user.man to read. If left to full control, users can change the user.man back to .dat and have fun.
