    Hi,

    We are using roaming profiles, win xp on clients and windows 2003 on the
    server.

    I have a user who complains that the user's settings are not retained - when
    somebody else uses their computer. For example the resolution is affected.

    Is their anyway to lock down those settings so a default is used.

    The last I understood, hardware changes are NOT controlled by the Roaming profile. Any local hardware changes will affect ALL users.

    Depends on what the DEFAULT is and if ANYONE can make hardware changes.
