GPO unintended consequences

    I created a desktop lockdown GPO that I applied to an SBS 2003 R2 Prem.
    network. Everything seemed to work well at first. Then users complained
    that the group to which the GPO was linked could not log into Hotmail/Windows
    Livemail.

    This was not an intended result. I can't find any settings in the GPO that
    would do this that I know about. Basically the user can reach the
    www.hotmail.com login page, but when username/password is entered, the page
    seems to try to load, but never finishes, and no error is displayed, nor is
    anything logged in Event Viewer.

    Could I get some help with troubleshooting this, please? I am at my wits
    (none too plentiful) end!
    Thanks,
    Duncan

    Hi Wes,

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    The 'lockdown' GPO has nothing configured on IE cookie behaviour. I also
    checked for ActiveX and none of the policies in User Configuration or
    Computer Configuration are enabled.

    I can log on as admin, but not when I log in as 'student'. The only
    difference is the GPO, so I am assuming that it is this 'lockdown' GPO that
    is causing the problem.

    Any other suggestions?

    Hi Wes,

    You got me looking in the right places! I found and changed security
    settings that were a bit of overkill and now it works.

    Have a great day!
