Stopping access to System Date and Time

By cmderrx ·
I have two windows 9x (Peer TO Peer Setup)systems that employees clock in and out on. Recently they have set the system time of one system to 10 min slow and one 10 fast and then clock in accordingly to their benefit. Is there a way that I can restrict access to the timedate.cpl so that they can not change the system time.

Stopping access to System Date and Time

You could try setting up a system policy on those machines to lock out the date and time functions. I have done this on an NT and a novell network, but I am not sure how well it will work on a 9x machine.. In 98 you have a system policy tool that you can use to build the policies.
Good luck.

You can accomplish your goal by initiating user profiles on these PCs. It is lengthy to go into detail here, but MS provides a couple of decent articles explaining how to do it. You can disable access to control panel, shortcuts, etc. Check the following sites:

There's so many ways to set the time on a system, I think you're going to be running in circles trying to lock down everything.

I would suggest finding some small time snych utility and schedule that to run in the scheduled tasks (say every two minutes), and of coarse restrict access to the scheduled tasks so this can not be disabled or changed.
