User Restrictions using regedit

By meribiacity ·
Hello All...

I want to deploy user restrictions on 120 some computers making a reg script. I am not using GPEDIT.msc because that will take way too long on 120 computers, and the network is not Active Directory.

Here is the problem:

~If I put all the restrictions under the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, all user that log into the computer will have the right restrictions which is what I want. However so will the administrator account which is bad.

~I can't use HKEY_CURRENT_USER because there are about 700 possible users that can log into any one computer.

How can I make restrictions for any possible user that logs into the PC except the administrator using regedit. Thanks in advanced!!

Then you may apply those reg changes to the current user without affecting the admin account.

Xserv overrides

When the user logs into our xserv domain, their profile, and CURRENT_USER, is pushed onto the machine. The default profile is ignored.

by dcoupe In reply to Xserv overrides

I am attempting to do the same kind of this with our xserve
but using local policies and I like the idea of being able to
use the currnet user profile. could you give me some ideas
on how to do this. I also have approx 200 machines to do
this on.
