View Full Version : Default user in Windows

After setting up 2 new users in Windows I also want to restrict access to my computer only to those users. But Windows allows anyone to access the PC if they just select cancel at the windows logon prompt. Can this be changed?

...one may limit user(s) access to your system using the Windows 'Policy Editor' - as follows:

(i) Install and run the System Policy Editor (poledit.exe) - it's in the \tools\reskit\netadmin\poledit folder on the Windows Installation CD.

(ii) Select 'Open Registry' from the File menu and double-click on the 'Local User' icon.

(iii) Open 'Local_User\ Shell\Restrictions'. Set the desired options here, and select 'Save' from the File menu when you're finished.
