One employee is a 100% telecommuter and accesses all network resourecs via our remote desktop server (Win 2008 R2 Standard 64-bit).  He has started to do a lot of report creation and needs to use Adobe Acrobat to create and modify the files.

How can I set it up on the server so that only he is able to use Adobe Acrobat?  I know it's a security thing related to Acrobat's files but more importantly how can I set it up so that only he sees it on his desktop and start meu?  If others see it they will try using it and get the access denied message.

I'd prefer avoiding having to explain why Jack can have access to the program but Jill cannot.

Thanks!!

you could just remove the shortcut from the all users desktop and start menu folder and move to his own desktop and start menu.  granted it doesn't prevent a user from drilling down in explorer and running the executable but at least it isn't just out there on everyone's start menu and desktop

I see how to remove the shortcut from the all users (aka Public) desktop.  Trying to figure out how to remove from the Start Menu so that others do not see it.  He'll know if there because of the shortcut on his desktop.

Thanks!
