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?

You might want to ask that over in the Urban Commandos forum.

Quick and dirty method.

Find the IE exe, usually in C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer,
right click the exe, select Properties, and go to the
Security tab, then select the Users or Groups
that you don't want to use IE and check the box that says
Deny for the Read & Execute line. Don't forget to hit the Apply button.
That should do it.

How do I do this?



How are you connected to the internet? Dial up? LAN?

lan, dsl

Also, if I have a document created in excel, that I want to share (and be able to edit from all user accounts), how do I do this?

Thanks! I didn't even know we had a tech forum.

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.

Go to the Control Panel and double click the Folder Options icon.
Hit the View tab and scroll down a bit till you see the
Use Simple File Sharing checkbox.
Uncheck it.
You should then see the Security tab.

The IE exe is called iexplore.exe
Search for it.

If your users are in the Power User or Administrtaor groups, yes they can install
anything they want. Move them to the User group and they will
have limited powers.
