I feel somewhat stupid asking this, since there is probably an easy way that I am missing, but here it goes:

>I have several users that have Power User Accounts using one workstation

>I have a set of items that must remain on the desktop in the all users folder

>They like to delete these, which makes it difficult for other users to use the workstation, and them when they realize what they deleted was important

>I have tried limiting access to the all users folder to read only for each of them (via username), to no prevail

How do I make it so that they cannot delete these items?

Thanks,
J.S.

How about in the folder's Permissions setting 'Modify' to 'Deny'. Right-click the Desktop folder in All Users=> Properties => Security.
