I got a problem with the students needing other fonts then the ones on the computer by default.
They go to "1001fonts.com" download the zipped file, unzip it, and attempt to drag the font to the windows font map, then this comes up:
"The file is being used and cannot be replaced."
I Logged on with an administrative user and I did not get this problem, fair enough, they are restricted from doing this by themselves.
My issue with this is that since this is a class working with publishing and commercials they sort of need to be able to do this by themselves.
They are ment to be creative and as such may use just about any font 1001fonts.com has to offer but I can't include every single font in that site in the symantec ghost image either.
Is there some way to allow them acces to this single folder without giving them full administrative rights, or is there some other way of allowing them to do this?

Thank you for your time. :)
