Disable standard users manage another account

Posted: 03-24-2007, 11:25 PM

Is there a way to make it so that standard users can't even see the
"manage another account" or at least not have the UAC pop for that
specific link at all?

also is there a way to let a standard user have administrator
privlidges for a specific program, It needs to access my media, but
since it uses the "Root" account, it only sees Root's media, and if I
browse to C:\users\drunk3nrabbit i can't see videos, music pictures,
ect...

thanks

No. You can remove the "User Accounts" option from the control panel, but
this would prevent the user from editing their user account settings as
well.

No.

I would suggest moving the default pictures/movies/etc folder location to
another location outside of root's profile folder, and then doing the same
thing from your standard user account, essentially making these two accounts
share these folders. Make sure that the permissions end up giving both users
access.
