Access rights in XP

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Bryan McNally, Aug 13, 2003.

  1. On a windows XP machine with 4 users, how do I prevent one of the users
    running a specific program. I know you can set up something in the
    administrative policies but I'm not sure how to do it. Is there a web
    site that has any directions?

    Assuming that the file is on an NTFS partiton of course :)
