I was informed that there is software tool out that is called POLEDIT from Microsoft that will allow you to lock down PC's so that users can not use say the A drive and other items. I looked on MS website and found POLEDIT for Win 98, NT but not for Win2k. Is there such a thing or do you have to use Group Policy to lock down a PC?

Thank you,

Windows NT and Windows 9X used Policy Editor.

Microsoft includes a powerful tool to help limit user access—the System Policy Editor, Poledit for short. Poledit is not installed as part of any Win95/98 setups, but is included on the Windows 95 and 98 CDs. On the Win95 CD, look in the \Admin\Apptools\Poledit folder (where is the drive letter for your CD drive). On the Win98 CD, look in the \Tools\Reskit\Netadmin\Poledit folder.

Last time I checked, Microsoft still has the Win95 version of Poledit available for download somewhere on their cavernous website-- here.... The Win98 version is on their website at:
