No option for LIMITED USER when part of a domain
Posted on 2004-09-02
Ok, I am setting up some new XP Pro machines on our domain. This is my problem. I want the set the user access to "LIMITED" for some of my users, but the option is not available. It is not dimmed, it is not there at all. I have 4 XP Pro machines that I setup about a month ago and on those machines the option is available. I just cannot for the life of me figure out how to enable the "LIMITED" user. It is not availble via "Local Users and Groups" or "User Accounts". The machines that have the option and the new machines are all on the same domain. They are updated via Windows Update fully accept SP2 is not installed. Any help would be appreciated.
Maybe I am beating my head against an imaginary wall here. Is the "Restricted User" account basically the same? I want to keep users from installing IM's and other programs on there own. Stuff like weatherbug and clocksync.... Anything actually. I want to lock them down to what I install for company use only.
