Dear Sir,

I need to disable the users from using Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V to copy and create shortcuts on their desktop.
I have a Domain Controller Win 2K8 R2 in place.

I need help.

Thank you.

Create the users as a limited user and disable write access to the desktop folder.  The user cannot paste anything onto the desktop without the need to disable CTRL-C or CTRL-V.
