The Windows XP firewall running with "No exceptions" should stop everyone. If by "anyone" you meant selected people accessing but others not there probably is no way. It's probably XP Pro, so file permissions could be used to restrict file read or write access to only those who know the permitted username(s)/password(s).

This response is from somebody who doesn't know domains, so there may be other methods.

a domain admin will still be able to get on if he wanted.

Im not recommending this BUT if you take his pc off the domain, put it in a workgroup with the same name as the domain. And just give him loca adminl user rights, once he authenticates ono the domain with a drive mapping etc he will be able to get his data , exchange etc AND no domain users will get access to this pc as they would require a local account.

Good suggestions.. I am the domain admin and me having access is fine.. So far I just made sure he has nothing shared and made it so only domain admins and his account can access through terminal services. Probably doesn't need to be more secure that that..

I need him in the domain however, it adds C$ access to all computers for domain admins so I can troubleshoot a variety of issues, also allows our antivirus full access and such, there would be repercussions of putting him in a workgroup.

thanks
