windows 2003 server ACL question.

I have a WIN2K3 domain server file and folder permission question and hope someone can help:

The program files folder on the server is setup to permit local users and local TS group to have right.  The local users group has read only.  The local TS group has R/W.  

The local users group includes the domain users.  

I login as a domain user and still have write right to the program and files folder.  I have realized if I make the TS local group to have R only, the domain user will have R only.  But we need to put the local TS group to have R/W.

Is there a work around so that my domain user cannot write to the program files folder?  

Thanks.

Usually they only need read only rights.  Some applications need read/write rights but you need to find those applications and give them read/write access.  Let me know if that helps, this will limit what they have read/write access too.
