Is there a way to prevent MS updates from changing a specified registry setting? For one of the text converters, we point to a specific one we install, but for some reason, MS recently has started to set that entry back to the default setting. I don't want to see that setting changed from our custom setting. FYI, we are a vendor at the site and the site is responsible for admin of their AD. We have little/no say over what can happened in their AD. So any AD solution will have to run to the Admin group get approved then go through an executive committee and the security group before it can be deployed. Individual users do not get admin rights.
