Is there a group policy that will remove the "server" service from the list of Windows services on a Windows XP SP 3 computer?
If so, how can this Group Policy be enabled on Server 2003 or Server 2008 Active Directory domain?
The users in my organization are required to have administrator rights on their computers. There is no way I can take these rights away from them.
However, our company policy prohibits users from sharing anything on their computers with other domain users.
The only way to effectively enforce this policy is to remove (or at least disable) the server service on the user’s Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 computers.
All of the users in my IT consulting company are very computer literate and know how to turn Windows services on and off.
However, I am the only one with domain administrator rights, so I will be able to block these types of things out with a properly implemented group policy.
Is there any group policy or other option that will enable me to do this?
