Nice work - but no way to tell if a "lower version" of Windows honors the setting.

Nice AV scan tweak

Now that the OP was able to get the gpedit to work - let's see if his "lower version" of Windows honors the settings that he wants.

Windows 7 Home Premium x64, Windows Vista Home Premium x??

I should be able to update if the Home premium version will honor the setting as I'm going to shut down for a while today and do some errands and once I get back home I will boot up and check it out. Fingers crossed. Will check out the link before I go though. thanks

Windows 7 ultimate 64-bit

One thing i think some of the others forgot to mention though; is BEFORE making ANY changes to the registry; ALWAYS make sure to back up your registry first!; failure to do so could result in bad things happening if you make a mistake in the registry; as the registry is one of the main "key" operating components of windows.

SPR - Software Restriction Policies

So - some users will report success when they cram gpedit into "lower version" of Windows and other users will report failure. It all depends on what change they were attempting to make.
So I've attempted to create a software restriction policy to block a file by it's MD5 Hash. I see the settings are available but actually the restrictions don't work - even after several reboots. This is another example that you can add to your list!
