  • Disable LAN Properties for Local Admins.

    Hey all.

    I'm trying to disable the LAN Properties for a Local Admin on a Windows 7 Machine.

    I have enable the policies for;

    Prohibit access to properties of a LAN connection - enabled
    Enable Windows 2000 Network Connections settings for Administrators - enabled

    as the latter suggests, its for Windows 2000, so i guess it does not work with Win 7 for a local Admin?

    i'm using Group policies on a Windows 2008 R2 Server.

    can anyone confirm if its possible or not to block access to the LAN properties for a Local Admin.

    Kind Regards

    but.. you'd be destroying access to the lan properties for everyone then.

    you have to be a local administrator to administer the local network device on a computer.

    Even a "domain administrator" is added to the local administrators group..

      Exactly what i'm trying to do, some components of Visual Studio do not work as Power Users, so i need to be able to disable them from changing IP to static.

      but i see your point and am aware of it.

      Thanks.
