    Restricting user rights

    I'm the volunteer admin for our local Salvation Army, including eight PCs which kids use in an after school program. We'd like to stop the kids from changing the screensaver, shutting down the system, and similar. We don't have a domain controller - I don't have a problem making identical changes to the eight systems. The PCs run Win2K Pro.

    I admit I'm completely untrained in this area. Can someone point me in the right direction?

    Re: Restricting user rights

    Graeme,

    Make the kids members of a user level group. Then apply policies. Log in as Administrator, click Start-Run and then type GPEDIT.MSC. This is where you can set policies for the workstation - and there are a lot of them that you can set. Keeping everyone in appropriate user groups is the key to making it work - this way, global changes can be applied easily.

    HTH,
    -Mark
