I want to create a very limited account in windows 7

Hello Everybody,
I want to create a very limited account in windows 7 for my son with these limitations:
-He can only read all files
-Cannot delete any file or folder
-Cannot create new files or folders
-Cannot Rename files or folders
-Cannot Move files or folders
Please help me by using any way (software-Group policy rules-registry hacks-or anything else)

I have made, (years ago) almost what you want on a Win XP Pro. My current windows is now Win 7 HP that doesn't have GPedit so I can't help you further.
As GPedit has so many options, you will have to learn how to configure it.

Hi Leprince,

have a read of this --

Group Policy - Apply to a Specific User or Group - Windows 7 Help Forums

Bit of a slog, but give you a better understanding

Yours is a common request, it would have been great if some genius had written a program with
Not allowed to do this/that and the other
and created a remove session changes on logoff

You can search group policy online in this page:
Group Policy Search

Please see it and tell me the policy that can restrict user from deleting,moving,copying files and folders?
