Assistance with locking user rights down

By PC Link ·
I have recently set up some new Windows 2000 workstations in a lab environment where they have a few trouble makers and they are wanting the rights of the default user ID that I created locked down. I have done this before in the past but forgot what keys in the registry to modify. I found some things online but the keys that they mentioned do not exist. Any assistance with this would be greatly appreciated. I want to stop access to the control panel and changing the dekstop settings, as well as installing programs.

Assistance with locking user rights down

If they are not required to install any applications in the first place, you can start by not making them administrators of the local machine. If they are assigned to the local Users group, there is really little they will be able to do. If you'rereally serrious about locking down the workstation - check out Appsense (for $30 a workstation) you can go nutz making sure what they can and cannot do. The software will control access at the kernel level, and as far as I know has not been cracked. http://www.appsense.com/ Good Luck, ~Leptor.

On a WIN2k you can run policy rights even if you only have one account running, i just did that on a computer I administer along with other people that need to access it.

I normally run the file:

c:\winnt\system32\gpedit.msc
and make any changes I need to make, that did the trick for me
