Win 2k Security

By AbdRahim ·
I would like to give users the ability to run
most of the programs on a given win 2k machine, without them having the ability to make any system changes. So far nothing short of giving them administrative privileges would allow them to enable/disable network connections (i.e. to the internet) or run Talkworks Pro 2.03. How can I accomplish this?

Could you make the users Server Operators or Power Users?
Alternatively you could try NTFS permissions on the folders where the files including executables lie.

This doesn't do it.

Personally I like to make several profiles for different users. In the profiles you can give permissions to users and also resrtict access to system components.
In the MCSE training kit you can find information about this subject.

If the software is within a Win2k domain find information out on Group policy objects.

If you are still tackling this problem, perhaps you should consider calling your local super-hero.
