I need to secure stand alone Window 98 systems.  I have tried Fortress which seems to cause me problems.  I would need the typical secured - restricting the control panel and not allowing anyone to access certain areas.
Any ideas?  
thank you

On The Windows98 SE CD-ROM you should find a directory called \tools\reskit\netadmin\poledit
This is the windows policy editor, you can define what a user is allowed to access either by user name or machine name (machine name limitations are for network servers).

I use this in work to remove access to various control panel areas from the users.

Thank you everyone for the comments/answers.  I don't have the Windows 98 SE copy - just the Windows 98.  Does the SE have to be purchased separate?  or can it be downloaded?  Will Tweaki create system policy editors?

Windows 98 SE is a seperate purchase from Microsoft, however you should be able to get a discount.  Go to www.microsoft.com/windows98 you should be able to find out how to upgrade.  I think that the upgrade cost is greatly reduced for windows98 owners.
