    Greetings,

    I have recently had an issue with the dns address on a windows xp
    professional workstation... some background.

    I have a windows domain environment, with sbs server 2003 R2 and 20 XP
    pro workstations.

    My work stations point to the server for DNS in the network settings
    tcp/ip dialog box. My ip's are all static, as well as the gateway.

    A recent virus/malware renamed the dns address to some address in
    russia. how can I lockdown the dns settings so that no program,
    malware, etc. can make changes to it. I assume something at the server
    level in group policy can handle this, but need some help in getting
    there. Anything is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
