The easiest thing to do is take away their local admin rights on their
PCs. This can cause some application compatibility issues, but it is
better to try and work those out then continuing to give users those
elevated rights. Applications that still "require" admin rights
(according to the vendor) to run can usually be fixed with the Microsoft
Application Compatibility Toolkit.

If that is not an option for you, you can configure file/folder security
natively in Group Policy under Computer Configuration > Windows Settings
> Security Settings > File System.

Subject: [gptalk] Securing directories from Users

I would like to secure the directories on my user's workstations,
without taking away functionality.  I don't want them to be able to
write or delete to the windows and some other directories. Should I do
this through NTFS or group policies?


Thanks,
Sunshine
