Has someone been tampering with your files? Has your work been screwed up because of accidental system software changes? Have you ever been locked out of your computer? Well if the answer to any of these questions is yes, then Windows System Policy Editor may be just the book you're looking for. When you're searching for a way to standardize desktop settings, prevent users from modifying the hardware and environment settings, or control or restrict user actions, then you need to use the Windows policy editor. It gives you the capability to create or edit local registry values. How do you set up different security restrictions for each user? What do you do if you want to set up a policy for a group rather than a single user? How do you configure desktops for roving users so that any computer they use will have the same look? Now that you have your network security, how do you protect your computer if it is unplugged from the network? These are just a few of the questions that Windows System Policy Editor will answer. This book covers: Different types of system policies, what they control and how to modify them Installing the Policy Editor and Creating the policy file Setting default workstation security In-depth discussion of the Administrative files Security issues Troubleshooting The differences between the Win 95 and Win98 policy editor Procedures applied to a stand-alone computer as well as a networked computer Computer security on publicly accessed computers has unique challenges, today more than ever before, and if you're in charge of administering workstations in a school, library, office, or any environment where increased security would be invaluable, you'll benefit from reading this book.
