Hi all,

Sorry to be so stingy with the points - I have to watch them carefully until I can get my credit card off "house-arrest" :(

I'm trying to use Group Policy Editor to create a policy that restricts what regular users can do on a particular stand-alone Windows 2000 PC - but I don't know how to apply this policy to only the users - for example, when I used the MMC snap-in to disable the RUN command on the start menu and remove add/remove programs from control panel they disappeared whilst I was still logged in as Administrator - I guess I'm looking for a way to save what I change and apply it to users - not have it applied to me!

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks everyone

... or rather, have your GPO's apply to just the groups (i.ex "users") that you need to restrict. Sounds like you're applying the GPO's to the wrong groups/users.

I Get you are trying to secure a workstation which is not on a Domain, am I right?

Try following these steps.  It's intended for Win2003 but I know the same process can be used in earlier versions, the only thing that might be incorrect would be the path to the Registry.pol file
