Hey guys,

We have some guests using a Desktop here for a few days. I'd like to block all access to the C: drive and any removable media. any suggestions?



Hi both can be manipulated in the local group policy on the machine. Bear in mind this wint effect the administrator account but other guest accounts. This guide is applicable to windows xp aswell as 7.

Thats a good tip. Now if they typed in Run and then C: they would still be able to access? Also what about usb and the cd drive?



They won't be able to.

USB blocking can also be done via local group policy.

User Configuration >> Policies >> Administrative Templates >> System >> Removable Storage Access



Come back to me with the results and we can proceed with the blocking of the CD drive. But I believe the option to block the CD drive will be included with the options I've stated above.



Why do you want to take on such task when simply enabling guest account will do, they cant install or remove programs through get account, if you are worried about bios settings simply set the password in bios, it becomes inaccessible unless they steal the computer.

Blocking cd n usb will render the computer useless if there are files they need to access from these devices.

but if its only for internet access only then, do what Roshan said the local policy will take care of that.
