XP file security

By adembo ·
In our office we use Lotus Notes for email. The Notes.ini file is modified many times as a user does different things in their email. If a user is not a local admin on their machine, windows will not allow them to modify the notes.ini because of the encryption of the OS. It does not appear to be a user right issue, since all uses have been given "full control" to the Lotus directory which houses the notes.ini. In fact, even the file itself has been given everyone full control access, all to no success.

How does a member of the power user or any othere group get authority to change a system file such as the notes.ini?

There must be another file somewhere else that's getting changed. Have you given the users full rights to the program files directory, and windows directory? Start out giving a user rights to directories that lotus accesses and then start taking rights away until you have it down to the least possible access needed for the program to run.

Problem is I dont want users to have full control of the windows directory. That is where all of these virus's and worms stick their files.

I have learned that many folders are inheriting their permissions from the root C-Drive permission. I could alleviate this by granting all access to the root of C, but again I will be granting users full access to the windows directory as well.
