Hello, how do i configure the guest account so that:(i am the administrator)
1) Nothing can be downloaded on the guest account. for example: adobe flash player, windows media player codecs etc.
2)Hide the Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Add or Remove Programs etc..
3) Prevent user from modifying system files or messing around program files
4) Prevent access from Command Prompt, Gpedit, rededit, and task manager
:thumbsup:
Thanks

There are probably ways of doing this without using software, but I am not sure of how to do it. In the past I have just used tools like the above as its quicker and easier.
Regards,

Alan.
