    Hi All

    Not sure if this is the right place but...

    We have a number of laptops which are site based coming back to the office now and again. All Laptops and Users have Admin rights so they can install printers.updates etc..

    We are looking to limit the permissions they have - does anyone have any ideas or any experience of implementing such a task

    Thanks

    Limit them to what? Don't give them Administrator access, and that will limit what they can do. If you need to restrict very specific things, you'll have to look into local policy (assuming these are running Windows XP Pro or other business OS).

    Well we need users to be able to install Printers and updates to software but not actually be able to install applications
