A customer has XP Home, now w/SP2 running Avast! Home Ed., ZoneAlarm Free firewall, and Ewido................ all running in system tray. She wants to keep her son from logging into his {Limited User} account and disabling/closing these programs for security reasons.

I switched the sons acct from Admin to Limited user, then logged into the Admin acct from SafeMode and added his username acct to the folders which the above programs reside, and only gave HIS ACCT read and list folders permissions, but when I logged into his acct., it still allowed me to shut down Ewido guard and the Avast! AV guard

I'd appreciate any guidance on this one - I did NOT check any blocks to deny anything, only unchecked most of the allow blocks except the read and list directories. The mom is a computer admin. acct and has standard/default permissions.

NOTE: I used SECURITY permissions, not share, as this is a standalone system and no network. Also, I copied this from the Network area, as apparantly, I selected the wrong area..............ooopsy

Edit: Trying to keep this on the 1st page

Didn't work, so *bump*

EDIT: I've downloaded and installed the MS shared computer kit and tested it on a limited acct., but I don't see anything that will restrict a non-admin from closing running programs in the system tray. Hiding icons is on a per user acct basis, so that is done once the user is logged in, and doesn't keep them from closing the programs.

I'm still looking..................... :tazz:
