Restricting XP

  jcotton 21:25 07 Nov 2005


If I had 3 machines all running XP Pro and all connected to 1 server how would I restrict the machines. I know you can do group policies but after I have restricted them someone "less techincal" wants to look after these 3 PCs. Is there a program out there that is an easy to use very user friendly program that does the same as Group policies. Maybe something with a nice GUI and has loads of different options with tick boxes?

Same sort of thing here click here (cick XP Utilities, XP Security Console), fewer features but free.

That is the sort of thing I am looking for but the only problem is with that anyone can run that program and enabled all the stuff again. Any more ideas?

a; `hide` the program under a different name in the Windows folder - just bring up a run box and type your `secret` name, it will pop up.
b; create a password protected executable from it with WinZip or similar compression program
c; put it on a floppy, or usb drive
