You can restrict it for all administrators (but very unwise!) but not just one. If you are sure that you want to do this, you will need to give them something other than admin rights and give them spercial permissions and also maybe give them access to do things in the local security policy to do all the other tasks they need to do.

If you are in a domain environment, apply a group policy to restrict the other local administrator's access to the  Network Connections Control panel.

"Computer Configuration (or User Configuration)/Administrative Templates/ Network/Network Connections"
For more information:

A possible setup would be to  restrict setting interface properties for Local Administrators,  and you could create a separate overriding policy for Domain Admins  to override.


You can  create the other administrator and load up  "gpedit.msc"  on a local Windows XP Pro machine,  and apply the  restrictions  as  "local policy"  while logged in as the target user.

Unfortunately, they can easily override,  using Admin rights  (if they know what they are doing)
