What you are after is something like 'su' (super user on *nix) on Windows. See here for the tips.

When you say "users", are you referring to domain users or standalone users per computer?

You could always create a basic service account which would be used to run the application. you could set the account to have minimal rights except the particular rights needed to run this specific application.

This would then let the users run the app but not allow them or the other account any further access..?

Are you the domain admin? do you have the ability/knowledge to do this?

A little more information and i can try to customize the solution based on your permissions and skills if you like?

I mean create a service account that does not have a personal drive. no DL memberships. no other permissions except for the specific permission necessary to run this one application.

so basically if the user found the cridentials it would still do no good.

WALLA!

I would need more details of the application, how it's hosted, where it's hosted, what permissions it needs to run.

Can you explain in details the exact situation you are facing? IE

I run the application from computer abcdefg.. it will always be run on this computer and connects through to a database hosted \\aukznnck\

then i can be a little more specific on how to maybe set the security. with what i have now all i can do is show you the basic documentation for creating a service account which is normally just a standard account with specific permissions.
