Hi-
I too have faced this problem, the only thing I can offer, is to implement a system policy. You can find this on your Win98 cd under reskit, it has to be installed using the add/remove programs\windows setup\have disk, then browse for the poledit.ini file on the CD.

When you create the policy it must be saved as "config.pol" and has to be saved on the servers netlogon file area.

For more information, about policies, you can try Technet.

Hope this is helpful.

Steve

I am afraid you have hit on a big difference between 9x and NT. This is possible with NT workstation, but I believe you are out of luck with 95/8.

I use Full Armor on 14 NT workstations and 22 Win98 PC's and have no problem with it . On the PC's I also disabled the floppy in BIOS to eliminate bootup from the floppy ,the access the harddrive to install software, and then passworded the BIOS.
Hope this helps.

PS. Full Armor is at www.fullarmor.com

If the workstations are running NT, then this is pretty simple. Don't give the user of that PC administrative rights. If the user doesn't have these rights, he won't be able to install programs, as he doesn't have the rights to wright to system files and directories, which is necessary to install most programs.
