Is there  a way to password protect the time & date settings in windows 2000 and XP? We don't want the users to be able to change time and date on their computers because creates big problems with the accounting department.

Thank you !

Hello el930692!

No, but you could ask your network administrator to create a group policy (if you are using Active Directory in a domain) that prevents users from making changes.

You need to change the security policy. As stated above, you can create a group policy and change the Computer Settings --> Windows Settings --. Security Settings --> Local Policies --> User Rights Assignment --> "Change the system time" policy so that the Users group is not in there. Or you can make the change on the local workstation using "gpedit.msc" if you don't have a domain.
