System/User permissions (Windows XP)?

By compy_class ·
Hey, I was wondering if there was any way to switch the "permissions" of an application from User to System.
Like, in the task manager shown below, I want to change rapimgr.exe from "C. G." to "SYSTEM".
Well, this is an example.. the real file I want to switch to "SYSTEM" is a web-filter--so the little buggers can't disable it whenever they darn well desire.

( - if image doesn't show)

Any help is much appreciated, thanks.

No, you can not....

The .exe must be designed to run as system and installed that way. You can't just change it after it's installed.

Check the documentation for rapimgr.exe and see if it can be installed as a system instead of as a user.

One thing you CAN do though is to change "the little buggers" user accounts to limited instead of allowing them to have permission to change anything on the system.

You DO have at least one separate account for them to log into Windows with, correct? Please don't tell us you're allowing them to use YOUR account (which has administrative privileges) to log into Windows!
