I'm not able to use login/logout scripts, so I'm looking at group policy to change the permissions of %appdata%\Microsoft\Signatures to read only.

I've gone into Computer Configuration > Policies > Windows Settings > Security Settings > File System and added an entry for %systemdrive%\Users\*\Appdata\Roaming\Microsoft\Signatures and set the required permissions, however it doesn't apply. Obviously the user variable %appdata% won't work on a machine level policy, just wondering if there is another approach I can use to lock the folder down?

I had also thought I could run a script on the server while everyone is logged off to change the folder to read only, but I'd rather do it at a policy level.
