Restricting user rights while running SUS

Expert Serdar Yegulalp explains how to restrict user rights while making sure SUS is functioning properly.

When you restrict rights for users you eliminate the ability for SUS to function properly. Do you have any suggestions on how to do both at the same time? I manage 25 users on MS SBS Back Office.
One possible way to do this is to run SUS with its own privilege set – to run it in its own user account, perhaps, with specifically-elevated privileges. Check out Aaron Margosis on Google. He is a programmer who writes and maintains a great deal of information on this exact subject – running with reduced privileges, or running specific programs / services with elevated privileges when needed. His blog is full of useful information, including utilities and walkthroughs, that cover this subject from many different angles.
