Windows 7: Can't disable WIN+L

Can't disable WIN+L

Hi,

I'm trying to disable Win+l combination to re-assign that keybind with something else. I don't mind if the user can lock their PC another way but just not via that keybind.

I have added in
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

DisableLockWorkstation = 1

Yet I can still lock, any ideas why?

Thanks

Go to this and give it a try using the second method on the page

Any chance it needs to be done for all identities/user accounts?

Gadgets, to disable or not to disable?
Hey folks, I have just noticed that Microsoft recommends disabling gadgets. I only have the default gadgets which came with W7 installed and I have never installed any others. Admittedly, the only one I use is the currency one. Is it a security risk to have them enabled?
