I'm not sure where this question should be posted. Networking because it involves two users on one station? Security because the tweak I want to apply is for that reason? Or here, because it's an OS-specific remedy.

So, mods, please move to a more appropriate sub-forum if necessary.

I need to lock the start menu and disable right-click at the start button & task bar solely for a limited-use account on my computer. I've spent hours+ looking around for how it's done & I've given up; before considering asking a board for an assist, I visited Kelly's Korner (this page), and should be receiving keys at some point from which will be well worth the $5.

While I'm waiting (and I'm a bit of a time crunch to do this), I would like know how it can be done. Obviously I have full administrator rights, and I've made back-ups of the system through Norton360.

Thanks for any direction given.

Exasperatedly yours,
Traveling Gal

Disable Menu Bars and the Start Button

Thanks - can you confirm that this tweak is user-specific, and not a system wide application?

Sorry, but I'm not sure.
