Steady State For Window 2000 RRS feed

  • Question

  • To the techguy out there.

     

    i was recommended steadystate by microsoft to administer user restrictions on xp platform and that works well but i also have a machine which runs on windows 2000. How can i do the same thing to windows 2000 platform like what steadystate did to xp platform. my window 2000 is a stand alone machine so is my xp machine. They are placed in a library so i really need to give some strict restrictions to my window 2000 platform else 2 or 3 days whenever i goes back to perform maintenance i will see tons of craps from user abuse.

     

    Look forward to your kind help!

  •  Unfortunately, SteadyState could not be installed on Windows 2000 computer. To lock down a Windows 2000 computer, you may configure local group policy to configure restrictions. To do so, you may refer to the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article which describes how to lock down a terminal session. The concept is similar.

    With the following settings, even the administrator account will have restricted access. To prevent administrator from applying these policies, please refer to the following Microsoft Knowlede Base article:
