If you need to run Win 95, I know that some businesses can not get away
from certain legacy applications, most of my systems are still Win98.
If the need for security is great enough there are third party softwares
for locking down the desktop to ungodly degrees. Check out Centurian.
Don't have link handy.

So maybe it is time to ditch Windows 95? It was not meant to be run
by business anyway. Try win2k.

I still think my idea of using the security policy is best.

Leon

Unfortunately Windows 95 does not let you.
True, we could run the network where everyone has the same desktop,
but 95
still allows you to install apps.

Why cant you just forbid users from installing there own applications
(especially ones that just recently were installing spyware without
the users knowledge) in an everyone e-mail and then refer users who
still proceed to do this anyway to the corporate security policy?

Cheers,

Leon

Can't you just block the port 1214? I think that if you block it on
your
firewall, you'll have no problem.

Can't you use some ACL rules? I believe the IOS has a FW.
