At work (non IT, non-tech work), we have a computer. My boss wants me to set up user accounts, the admin will need internet use priviledges, but the other account will only be able to use the computer for office tasks, printing signs etc (microsoft office, etc).


How do I do this?

Thanks for any help.

Deny for the Read & Execute line. Don't forget to hit the Apply button.
That should do it.

couple of questions:

1) Could they somehow install another browser covertly and then be on the internet?
2) couold they use chat or messenger software?
3) I can't find the IE exe, and none of the files have the "security tab" in the properties box.

1.delete tcp/ip for those user accounts.



or 2. use tcp/ip filtering. disable port 80,25,443,21,22,23 etc etc


open control panel open lan connections. > click properties > double click tcp/ip > click advanced > click options

I'm pretty sure you could change the permissions on iexplore.exe so that only certain people can have "Execute" permissions.

Annother solution:
Start, Run, GPEDIT.MSC

User Configuration, Administrative Templates, System

There is a policy setting named "Run only allowed windows applications" and "Don't run specified Windows Applications" This of course would restrict ALL users from using any application other than specified. An administrator could unlock the policy by opening gpedit.msc and right clicking on the "Local Computer Policy" and checking the "disable" check boxes. The administrator would need to remember to un-check those boxes later to ensure the security was turned back on.
