windows nt restrictions

By mbrijun ·

I have a question regarding Windows NT clients. There is a need to stop users installing the software of their choice onto our network. The poledit utility is not very helpful as it doesn't have an option to stop them doing that. Is there any way out of this situation?

Thanks, and have a nice day

User Groups

In Win NT you can assign users to groups in User Manager. If you don't want them to install random software, don't add them to the administrator group, make them a standard user instead. It also might be worth considering restricting their web access so that they can't download exe files.
