Actually I want to disable power options and screen saver from a restricted user machine.I dont want to log back as administrator as machine is connected with 8 screens. So for that I tried to run windows/system32/control.exe as administrator but instead of control panel window, i,m appearing with My computer window. Any clue to get control panel window in restricted (power user)user login?
