Win 95 Security

By fitgirl ·
I have a small childcare network that authenticates to an NT domain server with win 95 PCs via TCP/IP. As kids will be kids, they are deleting system files and making changes on the PCs. I am reinstalling the OS back onto these PCs at least once aweek. Help!!!

Can I put a password onto these PCs that will keep these little gremlins from doing their worst? (Adding or Deleting files)

I know this is easy for NT but we cannot afford the site licenses for twelve PCs.

Also, not all PCs have a bios password option. Any suggestion on protecting that also?

Thank You

Yes, it's possible.

Unfortunately I don't have the information with me (haven't touched 95 in over 3 years). There are options to prevent changes to menus, screen settings, open file explorer, etc.

I would check Microsoft's Knowledge Base.

Find the poledit.exe program. Run this and from this you can edit the Policies of different thngs on the computer. You can place certain folders as hidden, control panel not visible, etc.
Also get the free power tool 'TweakUI' and install this. You will be able to hide certain features, icons, drives, etc.
By using both of these tools you will be able to accomplish what you want. Both of these are free or part of the 95 OS.
If you need any further info, e-mail me.
Good luck.

Your question did not specify if you were trying to keep the kids from logging onto the computer, or keeping htem from raising havok because you allow them onto the computer. Any answer to your question depends on where you want the security to begin. Please respond and I will elaborate more.
