The two "Do not process the legacy run list" settings appear under Computer Configuration -> Polices -> Administrative Templates -> System -> Logon and under User Configuration -> Policies -> Administrative Templates -> System -> Logon respectively.

The documentation for these settings is confusing (i.e., wrong); what exactly do these two settings do, and how do they interact?

The actual behaviour (as observed in Windows 7 x64 SP1) is quite simple and intuitive:

  • The Computer Configuration setting disables the Run list that is found in this registry key:

    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce

  • The User Configuration setting disables the Run list that is found in this registry key:

    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce

Contrary to the documentation, the settings do not interact; configuring the computer setting does not affect the behaviour of the user setting.
