Philip, Thanks for the reply, but you assume to much. This is a standard XP install, out of the box more or less, and just connected to the domain. Users on our domain normally only have Domain User-perms with no access to the mid- to high-level stuff on the computer, like adding hardware, install drivers and programs and such like. I'm thinking the computer didn't have time to get all the policies down from the DC's, before the accident happened, and it was still kinda' running with Workgroup permissions set. I'm reaching though, and speculating wildly. Would anybody know at which privilege level one can start doing stuff like that, assuming non-edited settings for the standard usergroups? -- /Sorin >-----Original Message----- >From: windows2000-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx >[mailto:windows2000-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] >On Behalf Of Phillip Newberry >Sent: Thursday, December 11, 2008 9:06 AM >To: Mailing Lists; windows2000@xxxxxxxxxxxxx >Subject: [windows2000] Re: Deleting c:\windows-folder > >I find it strange that somone would give permissions to users allowing such an >act. > >--- On Thu, 12/11/08, Sorin Srbu <sorin.srbu@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> wrote: >> From: Sorin Srbu <sorin.srbu@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> >> Subject: [windows2000] Deleting c:\windows-folder >> To: "Mailing Lists" <Windows2000@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> >> Date: Thursday, December 11, 2008, 3:01 AM >> >> I find it really strange that Windows XP SP3 actually allows >> deleting of the >> c:\windows folder... Is it the same with Vista as well?
