Locked

Windows Xp

By Brian ·
How do you lock down a machine so that a user can not run programs on a Windows XP Pro machine. There is no server and it is a peer to peer network. I just do not want a regular user to be allowed to install programs on it. Does anyone have step by step instructions.

Go to Componet Sservice Under an Admin level. Once there, navigate your way to DCCOM Config.

Find your program, right click, select properties, and have at it.

in control panel you have to set their account to limited.for internet explorer you have to set access etc. up in the tools menu under internet options i'm not sure about blocking downloads though you might need a third party program such as a firewall to do that. if you need any more of an answer or talking through it let me know

Right-click My Computer. Go to Manage. Expand Local Users and Groups. Create user accounts for whoever is going to be logging on to your machine. Make sure that the users are members of the Users group only. This wont stop the users from running existing programs, but they wont be able to install any new programs on your machine.

Go to "run.." in the Start menu and type mmc. In the FILE option,select "add-remove snap in", click ADD then select Local users and Group. Click ADD. Here you can set the rules and policies for anyone logging on your computer.
Good luck
