Lock terminal server without using Group Policy

Hi

I have a Windows Server Std 2008 R2, not joined into a domain
How can I restrict users rights, but without using Group Policy?

I need, for example, disable control panel, network browsing, executing programs...

Thank you

Use local Group Policy - Administrative Tools>Group Policy Management

Do you mean adding to the server the Feature "Group Policy Management", and use them as Domain GP?

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell┬« is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Actually check if it is already installed named "Local Security Policy"

Ah
I already have Local Security Policy, BUT in there I cannot find something useful, like in Domain GP
They are different things

Are you sure you can do the same things fron Local Security Policy?

Most of the GPO's will just be registry settings i.e. http://www.pctools.com/guides/registry/detail/153/

Please see below the Technet version:

Now, the general problem in local policy is granularity, so get to the specific level, like say if you want to achieve different policies for different users & separate computer policies, this is the way to go:
Open mmc from run command
then you add in it :
1) Local Group Policy Editor

Now when you add this, it will ask you for whom you want this console to be?
At this point you can specify that it's for computer or user. The good thing is you can add all at once & save to your desktop.
This way you can add it for all the different users if you want to configure different rights for them or otherwise whatever suits your need.

Please let know your thoughts?
