Lock down windows xp clients with windows server 2003?


So users cannot do the following:

  1. Disable right-click on desktop (start menu and task bar already disabled with policy)
  2. Remove/hide Control Panel icon (but not all control panel functions - Date and time allowed for the specific application)
  3. Remove/hide Printers and Faxes (no need for any printing anyway but group policy didn't have the option to do so)

1 Answer

Disable or remove right click ability - set to 1: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\NoViewContextMenu

Remove/hide Control Panel icon - set to 0: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Start_ShowControlPanel

Remove/hide Printers and Faxes - set to 0: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Start_ShowPrinters
