We have a certain program that's set to start when logging on, via HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\

This is fine, however I don't want it to start when we logon as a certain user that our admins use for administration.  How can I prevent this.

I can use group policy to not process legacy run list, but I only want it to not run 1 of the programs listed.

I can move the startup to HKCU, but I don't want to alter the program.

So far the best solution is for me to change the security on the exe and deny that user rights to it.

Is there a better way?
