We're currently running 2003 server on our domain, we upgraded less then a
year ago from 2K. On 2K there was a way to disable right clicking objects in
windows explorer by using a group policy, i haven't been able to find this in
2003 yet. Does anyone know if this feature still exists or if there is
another way of doing it?

Internet Explorer, Windows Explorer, Start Menu and Taskbar and maybe for
other Windows Components.

You can find it under:
