I have a network that has around 30 PC linked on a PC (server 2000 SP4)
due to many reasons , the company does not have a domain controller and all users
are logging in as administrator.
Please don't yell at me ...It took that setup over ...
the layout is simple...all the users have access to a single shared folder.
how can I secure that network without having to install a domain controller ?
my main point is to disable the browsing of the shared folder (so that users do not delete files...)
maybe putting users on the server and letting the users log in ...???
can I disable the browser somehow without having to use group policy...

While all users are administrtators then there is not much you can do. I'm supprised that you have not hit issues with the 10 concurrent connection limit that you have in a workgroup. This is crying out for an SBS server solution.

It is "NO protection" not "Basic protection"  if all users are logging in as administrator.

(so that users do not delete files...) read only ?

If it's just shared folder from server side, why you gave the "administrator" account to all users, not login by general user account ?

Go to MyComputer (right click) --> Select Manage (Computer Management) --> Local Users and Groups --> Add New local user account in there.

And then you can grant the right (shared folder)  to those local account users for access.
