machine has been preconfigured with Err...can't change props

The settings have been blocked by the system adminitrator using a reg
setting. Even when you logon as sys admin you can not use the properties dialog to change to value. You need to change the registry
again before you can use the properties again.

AllowProperties: If this is set to zero, the user is not allowed to view the properties dialog and hence cannot change any settings, including the password. Note that this stops all global per-user settings. A valid password must therefore be in force before using this setting, generally in the local default-user setting.
