Windows 2K8 R2 UAC Question

I have a Windows 2K8 R2 in Terminal Server (although I don't think that matters)

I need to lock down the desktops a bit, i.e., no admin rights, no shutdown/restart, etc.

If the user doesn't have admin rights, programs won't run.  If I set to run as admin, it prompts for admin / password.  I have checked the UAC stuff in the policy editor, but nothing seems to work.

Thoughts?  I need help ASAP before someone messes something up.


Thanks,

Maybe this will help.  My ultimate goal is to have one or two programs that I need to be able to have run either as administrator, without the user needing to do anything or to back end it somehow.  

I don't necessarily need to disable UAC all together, unless that is what is required to do what I need to do.

If you say programs won't run, what happens exactly?  They just click an icon and nothing happens at all?  Are you sure your apps are terminal services compatible?  MS Office on a volume license for example.
