Disable access to C:, My Documents, etc.

Hey guys,

I've used GPedit.msc to disable access to the c:\ drive for local users.  However, they can continue to save files to My Documents, My Pictures, etc..

How do I completely lock down access to save any files to the laptop?  Windows 7 Ultimate..  I know of Deep Freeze but was wanting to know if there are built in tools to Windows 7 to provide this access security.

I know some discourage this however, this is the request of corp to do so as they have network shares they connect to through a desktop...

Thanks in advance..
Removed the "Exchange Email Server" and "Access Forms" Zones, and added the "Active Directory" Zone instead.

rindi,

You can do this with policy.  Are these machines on a Windows domain?

you can use GPO to redirect the my docs etc to network locations. Should do the trick

there is a setting in group policy under user settings, administrative templates, windows components, windows explorer that states "prevent users from adding files to the root of their users files folder"  if you enable this then that should block them from adding stuff to those folders.
