We have several Think pad laptops deployed in our company, including G41, T61, and T500 models. We are using Numara's Track It software to inventory our workstations and laptops. The auditing process needs to have Microsoft File and Printer Sharing turned on in order to work. We have enabled a group policy to set this to on by default. However, the Thinkavntage Access connections manager for the LAN connection overrides the GP and turns off the File and Printer Sharing by default. What's worse, with it off, we can't remotely manage the machine's services or even access the registry. We know that his is the issue, because reconfiguring the access connections manager to allow the file and printer sharing will allow all of our remote administration tools to work, insluding the inventory audit.
Does anyone know how to disable the access connection manager from running remotely? or does anyone know how to change the settings remotely to all for the microsoft file and printer sharing to be enabled by default. I would hate to have to visit each user individually just to turn off a setting.
anyone else run into headaches because of this "security feature"?

1.Find snetcfg.exe on internet
2.Create batch who runs snetcfg with this commnads from network locations
(this setting enable File and Printer Sharing)
snetcfg -u MS_Server
snetcfg -c s -i MS_Server
3. Deploy and run batch on laptops (GPO)
4. Deploy new AC profiles settings (.loa)
