asked on

remote desktop session startup programs

Hello,
Just recently we have implemented Remote Desktop Sessions from Windows 7 workstations to a Windows 2008 R2 Server.  How can I prevent programs from starting for all the users that should only be starting from the admin startup group?

Thank you for your time.

Are you trying to prevent complete access to said programs? Or just keep them from starting up for the standard Remote users?

^ This, and you could use Group Policy if you want to lock certain apps down.

It's not an access issue as much as I have programs that start when the admin logs in and they are starting when the RDS sessions login and I don't want that.
Thank you

Are you possibly referring to the Server Administration console that generally starts automatically for administrators?

If so, you might want to double check group memberships.

Alternately, you can use MSCONFIG command from Run: to modify startup programs.
I'll give an example.  When the admin logs in, programs like Carbonite shows in the system tray (which is probably running in the background even before the admin logs in).  There are about 4 programs that I don't need the remote sessions to see or interact with.

Just checking....is this not "do-able"?
