In a Sharepoint Site that allows anonymous access, we want to add security Quick Launch Menu, so it doesn't appear to anonymous users and perhaps some userrs, but for everyone else it still appears. How can this be done?

Use Content Editor WebPart (CEWP) on the page where you want to hide the Quick Launch, add the following in "Source Editor" of CEWP.

Refer the following to hide Quick Launch
http://blogs.technet.com/collaboration/archive/2008/09/26/how-to-hide-the-quick-launch.aspx

Once the the CEWP has been added, Set "Audience Targetting" property of CEWP to the group, which you don't want to display the Quick Launch.

The above will work for a page, If you want to use the same in all other pages of your site then follow the same approach in master page.

Hope this will help you!

Regards,
Zabi.

Thanks for the suggestion.  Not sure where to set "Audience Targetting" property.  I have looked under all the properties of the CEWP, and there is only the standard web part properties.

You can find the Audience Targetting from "Advance" properties. (Click on that + Advance link in CEWP ToolPane)

We don't have "Target Audiences" at the bottom of the Advanced settings.  We are running WSS 3.0 rather than MOSS.  Would this be the difference?
