Hello,

We have 35 computers and only 1 uses windows 98 (needed as software required only works with 98).  

Problem is that this windows 98 machine can access every folder/directory on the windows 2003 server even when these folders cannot be accessed from the windows 2000/xp machines on the network (they can only be accessed by the user with allowed access)

How do i stop this windows 98 machine from accessing these folders?.

I have already installed the DSCLIENT and connecting to the DOMAIN but still the user can access all folders.

Slug0r,

What account are you logging into the '98 machine with?  If it is one with administrative privilidges, there's your answer.

Also, I know you said you did a couple of these things, but did you do ALL of the things in here for windows '98?  http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=555038

Regards,

Jim

Thanks Jim,

I found that after following the above steps the files/dir was still accesible then i found that the folders in the security settings gave access to all users!! :O
