[THIN] Citrix security question

I just installed Citrix XP onto a Windows 2000 SP4 server.
I was looking at the ntfs file permissions and realized that the everyone
group has full access to all the folders at the root. And the terminal
server users has modify access to the program files folder.

That just doesn't seem right. It seems like they could delete/overwrite any
files they wanted or install any program that doesn't write to the registry.

I've never looked at a fresh install before, I always assumed that since all
my users are standard users, not power users or local admins, I'd be ok, but
looking it this I'm not so sure.

Do any of you change the default security settings?
