Create a very very restrictive account on XP
Posted on 2004-04-02
For our billiards organization we have some board-members who activily work on their computer but have a minimal knowlegde of what they are doing. Especcialy when it comes to spyware and viruses etc. Like today for example Access failed to startup due to a number of installed spyware programs.
How to prevent all this programs to be installed?
Maybe this will not cover all problems so I want to ask if the following is advisible and possible.
What I want is the following:
- An account for himself as administrator in which he can all he do what he wants
- An account for the billiards tasks. When he logs in into this account he gets an environment not harmed by any other accounts/programs. Even his account wont be affected by programs installed as administrator. (programs which should be system-wide like a virus-scanner, i will install for him and make sure it gets system-wide installed). In this account he should not be able to install any program.
Maybe it sounds a little paranoid what I suggest, but it comes always to me to repair his windows environment....
