Windows Vista LockDown RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    I have couple of systems most of them Windows Vista business and Windows 7 and I need to restrict them to following requirements. Any help / tips / pointers will be highly appreciated. The user must be able to only use following apps and thats it

    * MS Excel * PGP Desktop * Remote Desktop and * PC Anywhere

    Rest everything is locked and he needs to see only these 4 shortcuts on his desktop.

    Any help will be highly appreciated.

  • If the computer is not part of a domain type in Start - All Programs -
    Accessories - Run
     
    GPEdit.msc
     
    It will apply to all users so don't lock yourself out.

  • In that case the functionally is in ActiveDirectory and is per user or per group.
