stoping users load certain programs
Im running windows 2000 pro and i want to be able to block certain programs from use by certain users. Plus if i did this to my firewall (zonealarm) would it stop them configuiring it or would it stop it loading completely?

If you don't want other users to mess with the config of ZA, you can always password it -Pro Version only, i think the normal ZA doesn't have this feature.
As for program permissions, you can always edit the user accounts premissions and right-click the program ou want them NOT to run and set Security>Permissions.
Try to do this with ZA, right click it, allow everyone to run it, but only the admin to write/modify. This should (?) prevent them from tweaking with the conf. Try this with your own user limited account to see if it works.
Give this admin tools a look:

Right click on the programs folder and assign permissions. For software such as AntiVirus & Firewalls, you want to assign Read & Execute and nothing more. If you would like a how to guide, I would be more than willing to provide one.
