Windows 7: User Privilages

User Privilages

Hi, I am trying to get an almost exact replica of my school computer (minus RM CC4) and this is what I want to do for the limited users: I only want them to see and use only some programs (but I want the other admins to see all programs), I don't want them to be able to lock the users (Admins can but without the switch user button at the bottom), I don't want them to be able to see the local hard drive (again admins can), I don't want any user to be able to just switch users and I want all new users to be forced to change their passwords before they log on for the first time (e.g. after they typed their username in and temporary password). I appreciate if no one can do all of this but it must all be possible as RM have figured out how to do this

Thanks

Daniel Callaghan

P.S. Sorry if some of these are in the tutorial section but instead of looking forever and possibly not getting anything I just decided to create a new topic. I hope this isn't a problem as it is on some other forums I have been on

You have to use the Local Sseruity Policy Editor
Local Security Policy Editor - Open
I do not that much about it.
Althoght I do know everything you want to do can be done from there.

I know you do not want to but it looks like you
have alot of reading to do.
Everything you want to do is right there you just have to learn
how to use it.
