Hi,

I'm trying to disable the control panel for a Remote Desktop User group on a Windows Server 2008 machine.

In gpedit I have found: User Configuration - Administrative Templates - Control Panel - “Prohibit access to the Control Panel” but this prohibits access to all users.

Is there some way to apply this option only to a specific user group?

Make a new group policy of just above settings and then apply that group policy to the specific users. ie enter the users in that group.

In the Security Filtering section of the GPO (on the Scope tab) remove Authenticated Users and add the user or group. This will make the GPO apply to only that user or group
