This may be too much of a simple question for this board (well I hope
it is easy anyway) but at work we're looking at clamping down on our
PC's and want the following:
- Stop users using Messenger
- Stop users installing programs themselves.
In theory this does not sound hard, but here is the sticking point. We
have to allow users admin privlidges of the computer (not network), due
to an important program we use requires admin privlidges.
Plus our active directory is upon a windows 2000 server, which means
most of the good options which 2003 has we do not have (like disabling
I have looked on the net, but probably missed all the good sites, but I
was hoping to find a solution within Active directory, or maybe a
script to stop it.
The main reason to wanting to do it centrally is so that I do not have
to go round to every PC and disable certain things.
Incase it helps the platforms of the PC's are XP professional.
Any help would be much appreciated.
