I am getting ready for an NT to Win2k conversion. How can I prevent users from installing anything on their computers? I have already disabled removable media, but I cannot seem to figure out how to handle unauthorized network installations.
NT 4.0 user cannot install software unless they are administrators on their local machine. Take them out of administrators group. This can be done using a script and the NT command:
NET LOCALGROUP Administrators [username]/DELETE.
Be careful -- they may not like it too much when they can't do stuff.
