Lock Down Windows 2000 Workstation


To whom it may concern
For Reference: http://www.ntfs.org/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=35364

This should have been the forum I posted this topic in. At the time I was in a hurry and just went to the other forum.

We are setting up Windows 2000 on school computers and want to lock down the computers to where the students can not change the settings. If we lock down the computers through MMC or GP then the administrators can not change the settings either. We are not on a domain so we can not do it that way. The only way is to lock down the local machine. There is a student account and an administrater account. The way I see it there is no way to do it unless you lock down EVERYONE, not just a specific user. If anyone has any insight on this please let me know...

Your adjusting the settings under computer configeration thats why, did i not make that clear.

As I said in the other thread if you focus on the settings under user configeration you are only chaging the current users settings and not those of the administrator or any other user on the system.
We determined that as you only want to provide one user account to the students that this would work.

If you want you can use third party software. Search this forum section and you will find some good solutions.

I wont regard this as a dupe but if you could in the future just stick to the one post that would be nice :)

As I posted before.... IEAK (Internet Explorer Administration Kit) I even gave you a link (too lazy to look it up again). I even offered to send you a branding file if you were too lazy to do it yourself. Good luck.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
