Re: How to prevent users from executing other programs than permitted



First make sure that the users are not also local administrators as local
administrators can work around any restriction you attempt to place on them.
Then you can use NTFS permissions or Software Restriction Policies [XP Pro]
to restrict what users can run on their computer with Software Restriction
Policies being the best solution but the most difficult to implement. A
user/group needs execute permissions to a program application in order to
run the application. The links below will help get you started. --- Steve
