JSI Tip 3278. Registry entries for User Group Policy.

Even though you have 'discovered' the registry entries for some group policies, some of them don't work?

You have verified that the registry entries are still set after a Logoff/Logon, and even after a Shutdown/Restart?

When the registry path to a group policy derived entry begins with HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows, and it does NOT work, try adding the same entries (Sub-Keys and Values), beginning at:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy Objects\LocalUser\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\.
