Hi.

I have setup several TS users on my Windows 2003 Server, and I have found that they are able to change very little of their session.
For example I can add icons from the desktop manually whilst signed in as them, but cannot delete existing icons from the desktop. Most menus in IE are greyed out. The user is ubale to user the Internet through the browser in their session. Is this related to ISA or more the conenction settings in IE (proxy etc).

I do not wish these users to have any major rights to the server itself, but would like them to be able to manage their own environment settings.

Please advise.

Greg

These settings are most likely being pushed out through group policy.  If this server is a member server in a domain then it may be at the domain level, otherwise it would be the local computer policy.  Either way use the group policy editor to view and modify these settings.
