    Here's the situation...

    A clueless coworker of mine decided to take my administrative laptop and use it for something without asking my permission. The end result is a laptop that now requires a smart card to log in but won't proceed to PIN verification when a card is inserted. It is not connected to the domain that enabled the smart card policy, and I can't log in to attach it to that domain to remove the policy.

    I'm reminded of a program that can reset a windows password by rewriting the HD sector it resides on, is there something like this for group policies?

    I have to do something about this or re-image the machine.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks for the response, but that's for a different smart card locking system. The issue I'm having is for when before you actually log in.

    Well, if you read the TSG Rules, this clearly falls under our rule against hacking. We won't help bypass security restrictions such as this, since there's no way we can be sure of the real situation. Sorry we can't be of assistance with this issue here at TSG.
