Windows 7: How to prevent safe mode login for non-admin account?

How to prevent safe mode login for non-admin account?

Dear All,

I have 2 accounts set in my windows 7 PC- admin & standard.
Is it possible to prevent safe mode login for the standard a/c? I mean when the standard user will try to enter in safe mode, he/she will be denied access (may be force shutdown or a prompt to enter some password set by me). If there is any 3rd party tool to do so, you can suggest me that as well.

Thanks in advance,
Troy.

Why? Do you have a particular concern about a non-admin user entering safe mode? A non-admin user in safe mode will have the same access as they do in the non-safe mode. They are not granted any extra powers or capabilities.

yes mate..that's bcoz i have installed Folder Guard in my machine to block access to some pvt. folders for non-admin users..however the protection is gone once you enter in safe-mode..hence my request.

Well there is your problem. Use NTFS permissions to protect your private folders/files. Not some third-party application. All you need to do is right-click on the folder in question, Properties then Security. Give yourself full access while denying the other users.
