Current version: ZENworks for Desktops 3

Someone asked if there is a way to enforce the same screensaver passwords on a number of PCs. Well, there is! The Windows 95/98 password is stored in encrypted form in:

[Registry Value Create]
Flag=Write Always
Key=HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop
Value=30 46 42 43 33 33 35 41 32 32 33 42 00

So just make an AXT that enables the screensaver of your choice, then set the desired password on one PC and snAppShot the change, and distribute it to all PCs.
