Desktop Security

By joseph1 ·
Most Desktop Security programs allow you decide which programs can be used or if you may use the cdrom or not.

I need a program or set of programs or configuration that will allow me to create a list of files that only those files may be run and no others, and access to certain folders and all their files and no others. This list may also include files that are on removable drives.
You should not be able to bypass it by killing the program with Ctrl Alt Del and if you uninstall it you stillwont be able to run the "other files", or you can't uninstall it.
I need this for Win 95/98/ME and Win 2000/XP.
I will accept more than one answer, all that work.

As you said, it doesn't answer my problem. I also wonder if it will be as easy to circumvent as it was in 95/98 with just deleting the pol file.
thx anyways

You will have to use system policy to accomplish this, and how you will use it depends on whether or not you are working in a networked environment, and what type of NOS you're using to administrate your network.

In either case you'll have to useMS system policies on any of the MS server oses. System Policy editor on NT4 and Group Policy Editor on Win2k.

If you're using Novell or and *nix you can still use MS Policies but it becomes much more difficult to implement... seek someone experienced in this regard.

As I wrote in the question we are not taking about a system with polocies but o solution for all windows flavors and microsoft has yet to lockup 95/98, all you need to do is delete the pol file.

Your requirements are strict, but I believe Universal Shield should address most of them:

If you use a combination of file permissions and encryption, you should be able to attain your objective, as long as your users aren't hacker types. Anyone who is sufficiently knowledgeable and motivated will, eventually, find a way to circumvent any protection you may implement.

Good luck!
