Win 95/98 registry

By krissovo ·
I am currantly a network admin for a large company with a lot of users still on Win 95/98 on a NT4 Domain. My problem is that they have rights on these machines to carry out admin tasks and software installs which is creating a lot work for an already over worked IT dept. I know in NT4 that you can change various registry settings which lock down the workstations quite a lot.... I imagine that the win 9x offers this feature as well but can not find any info anywhere. Can you help a graying haired 30 somthing over worked service manager?

Pretty nifty, higher than what previous versions of windows administration went from microsoft.

What about policy editor?

by sdcphoneguy In reply to Win 95/98 registry

Have you not done any reading on policy editor which is a utility on the 98 CD and I believe you can initiate policies by writing them into the log on script from your NT server. These policies can do things like taking the add/remove programs iconfrom the control panel. Just do some research on "Policy Editor".

Poledit

by admin In reply to Win 95/98 registry

is the general path. You can also do registry hacks (poledit is kind of a reg hack gui).

Poledit is probably in a folder on one of the MS disks you already have, if not, get links for 9x versions at MS here: http://www.zisman.ca/poledit/

Hope this helps! :)
