Windows 7: Password protect "tasks"?

Password protect "tasks"?

Hello. I'm setting up my HTPC to completely replace my Bluray player, But I'd like to have a little bit of security that none of my family is going to futz with my account.

I've found how to quickly start WMC in Media Only mode, which removes the exit buttons, but i'm wondering if it's possible to password-protect the "tasks" section of WMC, so only I can exit WMC or log out or change settings.

thanks.

Hi

I've never used it myself but AppLocker should be able to do this. You access it via gpedit.msc and then under Local Computer Policy go to Computer Configuration \ Windows Settings \ Security Settings \ Application Control Policies \ AppLocker

Sorry I can't give you specific instructions on how to do this but at least you know where to start
