Prevent users from disabling network connections?


Apple lover, PC User
I have a problem with certains users on a Windows XP Professional Sp1 machine, they like to disable the ethernet connection in Windows so that I can not connect to the PC. Is there a way I can prevent this? What type of group do they need to be in (Administrators, Users, etc.) to preform the function? These users still need to be able to install applications, but I want to disable their ability to disable the ethernet connection, however still allow them to dial-up on the modem.

Thank you,



In the beginning......

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
