IMPORTANT: This article contains information about editing the registry. Before you edit the registry, make sure you understand how to restore it if a problem occurs.

Windows NT Service Pack 4 includes a new feature in the System Policy Editor that will allow the administrator to define the default selection for the prompt displayed to the user in the event that the locally cached user profile is newer than the central profile. This fix requires that the service pack be applied to the client workstation.
These new system policies are located under Default Computer/Windows NT User Profiles.
As an alternative, these options can be set directly in the registry.
WARNING: Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the incorrect use of Registry Editor can be solved. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.
For information about how to edit the registry, view the "Changing Keys And Values" Help topic in Registry Editor (Regedit.exe) or the "Add and Delete Information in the Registry" and "Edit Registry Data" Help topics in Regedt32.exe. Note that you should back up the registry before you edit it. If you are running Windows NT, you should also update your Emergency Repair Disk (ERD).
