This is related to my previous post regarding the "only-One Administrator-in-our-PC" question.

I only want myself to be able to tinker w/ the Task Manager &prevent others from with it.

I'm aware that it's possible to disable the Task Manager but i think/believe when i do so, it affects ALL users. so i want to learn how to how to do a "user-specific" disabling of the Task Manager.

XPPro has this ability through the Group Policy settings - but I don't think that Home has to do it through registry editing.

Here's the regedit for disabling it for the current user:

You'll have to make some modifications in order to apply it to each user that you want it to apply to.
