Remote Desktop Server (2008R2 Standard)

Hello,

I just noticed recently that all Remote Desktop Users working on our Remote Desktop Server desktop are able to launch and access the Administrator Tools.

I want to turn this off either by Group Policy from the DC or local GP (or any other recommended procedure).  

Would you please recommend the best practice?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Easiest way to do this would be to change NTFS folder permissions on C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Administrative Tools so that only your admins have access.
