  • Desktop Restrictions for a custom application

    I have a AD environment with desktop restrictions such as hide hard disks, desktop icons using AD GPO and it works fine. When a user logs into the Windows system he cannot access local folders.

    I have a custom application which has the provision to export logs to local drive. From this application I can access all the local dirves. Also when I select browse option (within this application while exporting logs), I can open the folder as "Open in new Window" from here I can acces everything such as control panel etc.

    Now I need to prevent this access from this custom application as well. How can I achieve this?

    Is this application running only when a user invokes it, or does it run as a service from when the server starts up? If as a service, what account does it run under? And what kind of app is this, what does it do? It may require such access to simply operate, but shouldn't give users the ability to use Explorer windows with 'system' authority.
