I read your other post as well. Sounds like you've got some pesky users on your hands. Of course you can set accounts to 'limited' from User Accounts
and use Group Policy
to limit access to Taskmanager.
But I'm thinking you might like to use Returnil instead. This has just been made free for personal use. Returnil places the entire OS in memory. When the computer is shut down, everything
that happened during the session disappears. Everything. Changes to settings, saved files, installed programs, everything. No changes to the System partition/disc are kept.
The program can be set to start with Windows, and can be password protected. It can also be set not to run in Safe Mode.
It will be extra work for you as Admin if you want to install/uninstall or save to the system partition. You'll need to boot to the password protected Admin account in Safe Mode
and then use the Returnil password to temprarily turn off automatic protection. At the end of your session, you can then reset Returnil from your normal Admin accout.
Using Returnil in this way will mean that no one but you can make any changes to your system. Everything that happens during the user's sessions is just a 'computer dream.' It happens only in memory and is gone at powerdown. AND there will be no way for them to access Returnil.
You can throw a bone. Files saved to a CD, external hard drive, or thumb drive are real. Returnil protects the system
partition, and if your C:\ is one big partition, (mine is) the whole disc is protected. Tell them to bring a thumb drive if they want to save anything. Or burn it to CD.
It will be possible for you to retrieve things from the 'Virtual Partition' after turning Returnil off from Safe Mode
but the Returnil password will be required even there.
I have actually installed and used programs under Returnil, and after reboot--Gone! No trace. Nada.
I think this might be the right tool for you.http://www.returnilvirtualsystem.com/index...rvspersonal.htm
