ezlife, that does work on 2000 if the installer provide sthat integration.  Not all installers provide that option even in XP.

thiyaqups... oBda has the correct answer, a local security policy or even better a domain group policy are your best solutions.  Unfortunately if this is a standalone workstation and you use a local security policy it will apply to everyone but the administrator.  We may be able to help with this, but would need more detail on how you would like this to work.

try to boot in safe mode,open the properties of the .exe program , security tab,and now you can restrict access and grant access to everyone you want.hope this help.take care not to restrict you:)))

sorry,i thought you are on xp.if is about 2k you don'thave to boot in safe mode.just clic on the properties of the exe file and from the security tab do tour job.this works only if your program that you want to restrict is on ntfs partition.if not...only using group and local policy.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

I think that before closing this out one should consider review of user account for misuse including and beyond innattentiveness. This does not sound like an administrator needing help.

SunBow.. you think this  is a potential end user trying to hide a program?   Hmmm.  What's an expert to do?
