    I have been testing NOD for our enterprise environment and I have rolled it to several of our staff for testing. Now that I am in the last few days of final testing I want to reset all the settings to the same thing and protect it with a password.

    The staff I rolled it to have been playing with the settings on their clients as part of their testing. When I send the config file to their machines from the RA console some settings are not over writing the locally set changes. o_O

    Can anyone tell me how to force the changes onto the machine and overwrite these settings? :doubt:

    One set of settings in particular are around the alerts and balloons that get displayed.

    These are so-called per-user settings which means they can only be altered by the appropriate user once they have been modified and the change has been written to the registry. If you need to modify them remotely, you'll need to uninstall/reinstall the program as this is currently the only way how to remove per-user settings from the registry remotely.

    In an enterprise environment it would be uneconomic to uninstall and reinstall a client everytime someone "has a fiddle". Are you able to tell me what part of the registry these keys are written to so that we can use policies to force the settings - thanks
