Exactly, then further down, someone mentions it not being possible at all, not even a reg hack...

Hi Ballistyx, sorry for the late reply.

I've not found anything yet, i'm just looking through some registry entries so i'll keep you posted.

Nice find ENZO, although I would personally steer clear of 3rd party software.

Bad new mate

I've not been able to find anything in the registry or even in the group policy editor.

Would have been cool, i think 3rd party software might be the answer but just check the compatability.
