Suggestion for computer lockdown without affecting the admin login...
Posted on 2003-12-11
Hi, my company wishes to implement computer lockdown to prevent users from installing illegal software and etc. Is there any other ways to implement this apart from
1. modifying the entries in registry to restricts the user and hide
2. downgrade the users to domain user only.
without affecting the administrator rights when it is used to log on to restricted computer.
This is because implement step 1 will cause the restriction to take effect even admin log on is used. In other words, the restriction will apply to all user regarding the type of the user. For admin to install another software will require the reverse changes and reboot the PC quite a few times. This is a time consuming for just to install new applications.
Any suggestions are welcomed. Thanks.
