The System subkey contains entries that store Group Policy settings for the operating system, such as the logon environment, task scheduler, and permissions to set and update group policies. Group Policy creates and maintains these entries, and system component programs read and interpret them.

This subkey stores entries related to policies that apply to all users of this computer. The Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System subkey in HKEY_CURRENT_USER stores policy-related entries that are configured separately for each user.
