  • Restrict which Programs Users can Use

    How do I restrict which programs users can use?
    Example: The accountant uses Quickbook (accounting/bookkeeping software), while the Marketing team uses PowerPoint and there is no reason for the marketing team to have access to Quickbooks software?

    Using Windows 2003 SP2
    Set up as Workgroup

    Is this not possible as workgroup, would I have to convert to domain?

    Thanks,

        NO.

        How do users access the programs?? How do they run them??

        If you don't want certain people to run certain apps then don't install them.

        Bit crap being in a workgroup eh!!!!!!

            try putting security on the quickbooks dir that hold the .exe and db file. The secuirty should only hold your adminstratror and users that need access to that.

            Fork up the money for the CALS you will be much more happier!

            Why have a server OS if you are running a workgroup...
            What do I know, I am only 26.

              You'll need to start restricitng access to the files using the NTFS permissions.

                Simple, yet effective idea which completely skipped my mind.

                Yea, I've been looking into CALs
