How to Disable/Enable Group Policy


Group Policy is one of a group of management technologies, collectively known as IntelliMirror management technologies, which
provide users with consistent access to their applications, application settings, roaming user profiles, and user data, from any
managed computer—even when they are disconnected from the network. IntelliMirror is implemented through a set of Microsoft
Windows features,including Active Directory, Group Policy, Software Installation, Windows Installer, Folder Redirection, Offline Folders,
and Roaming User Profiles.
