Well, this would seem to be a no-brainer, but after searching MSKB, Googling, Winguides and here, I admit defeat. Here is the problem.

I had a workgroup. I implemented polices under the manual download option. They worked great.

Now I'm implementing a PDC. I want to re-configure the Win98 PCs to log onto the new domain, no policies.

Under my old policy, anyone trying to log in w/out a valid login would get my default policy: no programs - you can just log out.

When I re-configure to domains, and log in, the PDC validates my user and promptly implements the default policy.

I've disabled policies in the registry. What the heck do I have to delete or change to get rid of these policy "ghosts"?

T.I.A.

Unfortunately, I did not have time to test this and refine it, but this is how most things were fixed..

1) remembered that you must clear a greyed box in order to "un-check" a previously checked restriction

2) to over-write default profile, log out - log in under an unused name/password combo. When prompted to create a profile - just say no. Log back out and back in under valid username. Bingo.

3) to clean up various "odd" things - export Users Key and merge said .reg file with your other clients after performing step 1 and 2 for good measure.

There has to be redundancies and un-necessary steps in there, but it worked and I managed to convert my 19 PCs.

Thanks for all who looked in.

Glad you solved it, I didn't really have an idea how to attack it. :D
