I need to be able to allow my users of our terminal server to view the system time/date/calendar but not be able to update it.  Is this possible?

would like only to add that there's no correlation between a user seeing the clock and the right to change it. This right is given by default on a server to Administrators and Power Users. It can be changed through the Local Security Settings (that is something I would not advice, use GPO in an AD) or by using the same setting in GPO, under Computer Configuration -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Local Policy -> User Rights Assignment.
Anyway, in my TS environment, I set in the Taskbar properties to show the clock, and the users don't have the right to change it, or disable it (they have no right to alter the Taskbar).
