Windows 7: Restrict Certain Files Types

15 May 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional 32 bit
Restrict Certain Files Types

I have set group policy restrictions for Non-Administrators on my system as I have quite a few people that use it.

Is there any way to disable/restrict certain file types for Non-Administrators.

Also whats the best way to disable the install on the .INF context menu for Non-Administrators.

Many Thanks

If they are already non-administrators then they cannot affect the system itself.
