    Hey everyone
    I was wondering if it is possible to make a specific user (such as Guest) and change it's user permissions. For instance, right now, Guest can do the usual stuff but not access any folders other than its own My Documents. What I want to do is configure it so it is not able to use certain applications, click properties for the desktop, etc.

    Anyone know how?

    You can make a guest but I don't think you can block specfic files

    I don't think you can restrict programs either, there's not much control for guest accounts
