Application Access in Active Directory

Hello all,

I was wondering if it is possible through group policies give certain users full rights for certain applications. My problem is I have stand alone Norton 2009s which constantly ask for admin access to update along with a few 3rd party apps which get frequent updates.

I am running Windows 2008 x64 Standard.

Thank You

If you can't raise the users' local permissions (might be worth trying Power Users?), then really all you can control via group policy is file system and registry permissions. If you can figure out which files/keys are restricted to local admins and consequently non allowing normal users to perform certan tasks, then you can change this via group policy. Either that, or the software might have registry key you can edit to allow non-admins to perform certain tasks.

Unfortunately because it's 3rd party software there's not going to be anything in the GPMC to modify the application's settings. This would be where a custom adm template might come into play, either supplied by the software vendor or you can write one yourself (if you can find out the registry entries you need to edit).

Without any knowledge of these applications I'm afraid I couldn't be any more specific.
