Windows 7: Limiting access to a Windows 7 computer (workstation) that is on a Dom

Limiting access to a Windows 7 computer (workstation) that is on a Dom

Hi Everyone,

I am currently using a Windows 7 (x64) computer on a Domain. The Domain Controller is a Windows 2008 R2 computer. I have Administrator access to the Windows Server as a result I can alter any settings that I see fit.

Recently a number of staff members have been logging onto my Windows 7 computer without my consent.

I would like to limit access to my computer so that only my Domain Account can logon. Ideally this will mean only allowing my personal Domain Account access, and by extension prevent the Domain Administrator from logging on as well. I am not the only staff member with Domain Administrator privileges, and I ultimately want to make my computer inaccessible to all staff with the exception of myself (naturally).

Any suggestions here will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

Davo

How are they able to log onto your account unless you gave them the password for your account?

Hi chev65,

Thanks for your response. Staff are logging onto my computer with their own Domain accounts. Admittedly this does not allow them to have Administrator access, however I would prefer if they could not log on at all.

Kind Regards,

I see, they are signing into their own Domain account on your PC. It seems like there would be more than one way to get this done.

Have you looked around in the Group Policy Settings to see if there is a GP for this?

Mr Davo because this is a domain I suggest you go to your I.T.Department and request your changes to them and let them guide you.
It's not nice to change things on a domain without I.T.Department approval.

Hi All,

I am the I.T. Department, I just haven't done this particular task before!

Thanks
