Give a user local admin rights, but still lock the pc down
Posted on 2009-07-01
I am in a school environment, and alot of the software the students use requires elevated rights to work properly.
Normally this is not a issue, as I can change permissions on folders and such. But one program they use will not run correctly unless the account is made a local admin.
alot of our students know there way around a computer, so I need to give the user account local admin rights, but lock everything else down as they were a standard user.
I have removed basic components like the control panel, run commands, etc. But i am not sure of the issue I would run into with them students having local admin rights.
The software makes many changes in the registry, and uses other components outside of the program folder, so using a run as will not work.
Has anyone here run into this, and if so how did they combat this issue.
