Group or user name list order

Q: Group or user name list order

Hi guys,
I have a problem with the group or user name list order from security tab of file or folder properties. It is a random order in that list and that makes hard job to give/verify users permission. How can we correct this problem?

Preferred Solution: Group or user name list order

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

No one was up against this problem?
It's really hard to find someone in that list if the list is not ordered and if is long enought.

Hi, I hope I'm posting this to the right forum. I wanted to ask if there's a way to customize what types files appear in what order when you group them by type? All of my PSD files appear above my folders when I group by type, but I want the folders to be on top. How can I change this?

I cant get anything but the folder to be on top. When ever I click on say folders and mp3 no matter which way it is sorted by type folders are on top.

Sorry bad title hard to explain the issue I'll try to do better now On my Apps list is the installed apps As expected But many of the installed apps include more than just the app in the list An example I have installed RoboForm on the Apps List is a list of several RoboForm icons How Apps list the list? I in the group can The icons Buy RoboForm Generate Passwords New version check RoboForm RoboForm Editor Search Box Search Files Taskbar Icon and Uninstall A total of Icons for this one program App How can I group the list in the Apps list? I have other apps with the same issue but RoboForm is the worst Is there How can I group the list in the Apps list? a way to group these icons so that I only have RoboForm icon There are also other icons on the list that I would like to delete such as the quot Register Device quot that came with my new Dell laptop It was registered now I don't need want to be reminded to do that again Hopefully this makes sense to readers it is very frustrating to me Thanks Ron

A:How can I group the list in the Apps list?

Hello Ron,

If you like, you can sort the Apps screen by name, date installed, most used, or category. Name or category may be best for what you are wanting.
Apps Screen - Sort By in Windows 8.1
Afterwards, you can also add or remove items from your Apps screen.

Having just learned from an OLD post here that renaming a user account apparently doesn't change the order in which the corresponding logon icons appear at startup -- due to the order being apparently determined by when each folder was originally created, which was when this computer was first opened back in 2011 -- I want to be able, after creating a new user account, to migrate data from the account whose name I changed. I'd been previously suggested to try User Profile Wizard from would this be a good idea, or can you suggest something different?

When I Add a New Contact to a Contact Group in Windows Mail, a list of all contacts is displayed in Name order, i.e., in first name order. This is very difficult to use. How can convert the list to Last Name order? I have done this with the main Contact list displayed by Windows Contact by adjusting the items and their order in the Details list. But this does seem possible with the Add New Contact list.

Is it possible to set administrators to one GP and standard users to another? I want to disable Command Prompt, Task Mgr and lockout all USB and CD drives for standard users but allow administrators to access all of those.

How do i set different group polices depending on user?

Thanks in advance

A:Set Group Policy different for each user group?

Yep. As long as the policies you want to deploy to those groups are per-user (i.e. within the user configuration section of GP Editor), then you can use a tool like Microsoft's GPMC to "security filter" the effects of a GPO to a particular user group. Or, you might want to check out Desktop Policy, which provides a simplified web interface into Group Policy and makes targeting by group much simpler (full disclosure--I work for this company).

Hi there

Is there any way to customize (or use an alternative to) File explorer.

Here's an example from DOLPHIN (a Linux type of File explorer) - breaks the folders down into decent alphabetical order and the files within them etc - makes navigation very easy indeed.

File explorer is a DOG compared to this - especially when you have large folders with loads of files in them -- the serach is better too !!!!.

hi people what i want to accomplish is to set an user account type automatically after creating one as you may know when you create an user account the system ask you what account type to apply for that new user the default user and user group or account privilege type choice are Administrator and Limited i want to user account type and group or user privilege create an account that is not too limited but neighter with same privilege as an administrator i went to the Local Users and Groups at the Microsoft Management Console now on MMC and assigned a different Group to each users i desired task accomplished but the problem is that i don t know how many user the computer will have the owner of the computer are primitive human that don t know how to configure the system i neighter want any of them to have administrative right because they have internet access and they still on the experiment process meaning that they re propense to click YES to any message even if those are viruses most of them don t read english the solution i thought was to assign only one user the administrative right so they can install and uninstall software and perform other administrative task as creating more user accounts there is anyway that after creating an user account the system automatically assign the user a specific Groups for example the built-in object Power User or among the choice on user account tool add an new item or modify the existing items or if there is anyway to modify the privilege and right for an built-in object Group the Limited account pertain to the User Group so instead of automatically assign other group the new account inherit the privilage right limitation from the default group any help or comment is welcome thanks nbsp

How do I save FOLDERS so that they ll be in the order in which I put them on the CD RW I want to save the would list a ORDER CD? on FOLDERS I How in original file Folder they re all Word doc or txt files then every two weeks or so save a new folder with the revised updated info i yet How would I list FOLDERS in ORDER on a CD? keep the preceding ones from being written over i For example would something like this be feasible Folder this would be the quot root folder quot Folder and so forth I was thinking of putting a Read Me file on the CD but presume it d be stored as last file on the CD after the Folders Could I put a Read me file in a folder named say Folder Read Me Would it be listed before Folder A problem would be saving a month with a in it October Nov or December OR a date with only a single digit OR would they be sorted saved to the CD by the Folder listing nbsp

A:How would I list FOLDERS in ORDER on a CD?

I use dates in reverse format at the start of folders or files when I want to do something like you're describing. A new folder or file made yesterday would be:

20030420 Folder Name

while today's would be:

20030421 Folder Name

The folder/file names can be anything I need and they will always be sorted in the folder in the order I first created them. This applies also wehn backed up to a CD.

I use this approach because it often takes me several weeks to get some document completed and I will often remember the rough date when a file was topical, but it would be out of sync after multiple edits, saves, etc.

It also helps in keeping all files of different types related to the same project/topic in a useful order. I know there are many different ways of using the filter options in Windows, but this simple naming approach seems to work fairly well for me.

Hope this helps.

Hello gifted computer people... today's question is:

In xp the default manner in which items are listed in a folder is alphabetically, right? Well, I have a number of folders containing files which all have a date in the name but which are otherwise named identically, ie., exercise log august 2011, exercise log sept 2011, etc... My question is, can I request the system to list the items in the correct order by the dates in the document names? Being listed alphabetically, obviously, they are out of order chronologically...

Thanks for any help...

A:Solved: Folder list order

No you can't....Your best option would be to rename them like so:

exercise log August 2001 > 08-11 exercise log.

that will do them in numerical order

I saw a post by Noel where he told the OP to install by Date, not KB# which reminded me of a question I've had for quite some time. Are updates generally listed in order of 'Importance' or 'Date' or what?

Right now I'm down to 6 updates left to do. They're all .NET Framework from the 7/9/13 list of updates & in clicking on the "More info button" they're all 7/9 & there are 4 listed for 3.5.1, then 2 listed for 4. I've read something about it's best to install these type one at a time, is that true? If so, that's 6 re-boots in a row if I were to do them all now which I kinda thought about since it's already 2 weeks past Patch Tuesday. I'm also assuming that all the Framework 3.5.1 should be done before the Framework 4.


A:Installation order of list of updates

The KB Number is generated at the start of a project - and as a results bears only some resemblance to the order in which patches are released, since some patches take longer to develop, test and approve, than others.

I generally do .NET update in increasing order by version, then date
e.g for XP, do all v1.1 then v2/3.5 - for Win7, all 3.5, then 4.5 (I've uninstalled 4.0, as it seemed always to create more problems than any other version)

I have tried all menu items on View in My Computer to arrange the list (Drive C etc.)
It used to be in the order I wanted, then it changed.
It is now: (Details view -  and in "arrange icons by"  I marked  Comments and Show in Groups)
Local Disk (C:)
DVD-RAM Drive (D:)
(a space)
(another space)
(yellow folder icon) Shared Documents
(yellow folder icon) (My name) Documents
It used to be that the Shared Documents and my own documents were at top with the Local Disk and Drive D listed last.  I tired Invert Selection on Edit--nothing happened.  I CAN get the drives on the bottom, but D is always before C in the list.

I use Nero Burning Rom, not sure what version it's on my computer at home, but I'm fairly certain it's version 6 or 7, I know it's not 5. Anyway, I label the songs I want to burn (mp3 format) by naming them like this 01 - Name of artist - name of song.mp3. However, when I add files to Nero to burn them it will put them like this 01, 010, 0100. I've tried variations of numbering but nothing short of a bizarre list of number and letter combinations will get it into the correct order I want it burned. Is there an easier way to do this? I can't find any kind of function in Nero that lets you burn in the order you add individually or anything. Thanks for anyone help!

A:Solved: Nero song list out of order

Nero can only burn data (mp3's for eg) the ways windows allows you to view a folder's contents. (By name, date modified etc). So you do have to number or letter the files as you are doing. To get what you want you need to add zeros to your numbers.
01, 02 etc will only do for less than 10 files, for more than 10 but less than 1000 you need to go 001, 002, 003 etc. And 0001, 0002, 0003 will keep them in the right order up to 10,000.
You need the same number of digits as the highest number basically and you make up the digits with zeros at the start.

hello everyone,

i have a sandisk mp3 player (256 mb) and the only problem i have with it is when i sync songs, they do not appear in the order that i have synced them. this is most evident when i am syncing musicals. the songs do not follow their order in the playlist (i use wmp to sync). i checked the file names and they seem to be arranged correctly. the shuffle function is turned off too. any insights? it is quite a bother. thanks!


A:mp3 player song list not in correct order

Are they numbered 01, 02 etc. Some players will play 1, 10, 11, 2, 3 etc so it best to have a zero infront of any single digits.

Also the player may be taking its cue from the tags instead of the filename, so make sure that the files are tagged correctly. I've never used it but I've heard that mp3 tagger

is ok.

A:Solved: ComboBox List Table sort order

You should not really bother sorting Tables as data should not be viewed in it. Data from the table does not obey the table's sort order, so to overcome this use a query to get the data sorted the way that you want. Access sorts from the left first.
You can sort your combo's data by opening the Row Source SQL and adding the sort to that, do not "save it" close it and when Access asks if you want to save the SQL say yes.

On the Windows 7 machine, try going to the Network and Sharing Center, then go to the Advanced Sharing Settings, make sure that Network Discovery and File and Printer Sharing are both enabled for all Networks. This is the most likely reason why you can't see the Windows 7 desktop.

If those are enabled then try leaving the Homegroup from both machines then create a new one on the Windows 8 machine then join the new Homegroup from the Windows 7 machine.

With the new Outlook 2010, there are no longer any restrictions to the number of recipients in each list, so I consolidated my group lists into one. Currently it has about 350 recipients in it.

I tried sending out an email (about 500kb) today to the group list in the bcc field and a single name in the "to" field. An email came back from "System Administrator" with subject : "Undeliverable : (Title of email here)"

In this return email, it says "Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients." And thenit proceeded to list the entire group list with a line "None of your e-mail accounts could send to this recipient" below the recipient name and email address.

Can anyone let me know how to fix this?

A:Undeliverable BCC mail to Group list

Whether or not Outlook 2010 has any restrictions of how many people can be in an Email Recipients list doesn't mean there aren't other restrictions put in place by your email provider and or ISP as to how many recipients one email can contain. So your Email provider may limit the number, to stop SPAM, to 20 or 30 recipients or whatever. When it sees an Email that contains 350 email addresses, going out to 350 recipients, it just Blocks and sends back an Administrative warning.

There is only one way to fix it. Find out how many email addresses can be in one email and don't go over that limit. you would need to call your providers tech support.

My sister told me that her Windows Mail is really strange. I can't help her because I don't use Windows Mail so I am asking on her behalf.

a) When she opens her Contact list , the names are in alphabetical order (which is expected) .However when she composes an email and clicks on the "To" button , the name list displayed is not in alphabetical order by name but strangely ordered by email addresses. Is there a way to rearrange to resort by names?

b) When she types a name in the Address area ie in the box next to "To" , another page opens for search. Is this normal ? With Outlook ( which she used to use until she changed to a new computer running Vista) when you type the name a list of potential email addresses appear. IS there a way to fix this?

Hey guys I used the premium upgrade version to upgrade my vista to 7 and loving it so far. With vista on the welcome screen it was alphabetical so with my name beginning with "A" my name was first, my parents who I start pff woith my mums name "L" 2nd and my sister "M" 3rd but since the upgrade the order changed and now I'm 3rd, my sister second and my parents first. NOt so big a deal but I was use to the old order plus with my name being first I just had to hit enter and type in password now I'm too lazy to use the cursor to click on my name or the arrow keys to go to it hahaha nah but just was use to the old order and wow I've made a long post over something so dumb

A:Can order of user accounts on welcome screen be changed

Hello Vesh and welcome to the SevenForums.

Logon screen shows the user accounts in alphabetical order based on the names first given to the account when it is created. If you change the user account name later, it does no longer change the order accounts are presented. Reason is simple: even if you change the user account name later, the user account folder keeps the original name. Renaming the user subfolders in C:\Users does not change the situation.

An example:
You create an user account called Tom. After Tom logs in to that account first time, the subfolder Tom is created in C:\Users. This folder has now subfolders Vesh, Tom and Public. Logon screen shows two accounts alphabetically, first Tom and your account Vesh next to it.

You want your account to be shown first, so you go to Control Panel > User Accounts and change Tom's user name to Z-Tom. Logically this should now move your account first on logon screen (V before Z), but it's not going to happen because even though user name Tom was changed to Z-Tom, this users subfolder in C:\Users still has the name Tom.

Changing the username in User Accounts does not change the user's subfolders name thus the account order in logon screen stays as it was when user's subfolder was created by logging in first time!

What all this means is that you have to think the logon screen account order already when creating accounts. One method is to create accounts with names like A.Vesh, B.Tom, C.Wife and so on, and then log in to these accounts once so that the user subfolders are created. After that you can change the user names to whatever you like; logon screen is always going to show these three accounts in the alphabetical order they had when created.

I am very sorry I can not explain it better. I hope you can understand what I wrote; I read it through now and I have difficulties to understand my own text!

A:User Group Policies

GPEDIT.MSC (Group Policy Editor) isn't available on XP Home Edition, partly because XP Home cannot join a domain by design. Although the took is designed to be used in an Enterprise environment running Active Directory, all it really does is making registry entries. So, the best alternative is to edit the registry using Regedit. Be aware that editing the registry incorrectly can make your system unbootable or cause other issues.

I have a Database at work that is protected. I was added to a workgroup so that I could help maintain it. Now whenever I open any other Database I have to give my user name and password, otherwise it won't open. How do I remove myself from an Access User Group so I can move around different databases more easily?

Side note: My initial setup was done through wrkgadm.exe


A:Access 97 User group

It's not about being added to one db's users, it's about having the .mdw file that that file references run all your Access hookups.

I'm guessing that whoever created your security didn't bother to (1) use a new, fresh .mdw file rather than the system.mdw file that is Access's default security handler, and (2) create a specialized shortcut that would open only the Access file in question with only the custom .mdw file in question, leaving the rest of your Access connections alone.

Look at the properties of the shortcut you use to open to see if it has a /wrkgrp option on it. If not, this means that it's using the system.mdw default file, and your only option is to replace it with a clean version. You should be able to find one kicking around, either on your machine (I have about 6, but hey, I'm an Access programmer), on an uninitiated user's machine, or on your network. And it just might let you in to that "protected" db without a password, too.

edit: By the way, the mdw file extension denotes a file that controls user-level security for Access. In case you were wondering what I'm ranting about. (I don't like Access user-level security. Can you tell?)

In an effort to debug another problem I'm having with free disk space, I started to check on the 'Sharing and Security' settings of a bunch of folders by right-clicking in them and choosing 'Sharing and Security'.

From there I chose 'Security" and was very surprised to see the following list of 'Group or User Names':

Administrators (ERIC2\Administrators) (this seemed legit)
CREATOR OWNER (I had never seen this before)
Eric (ERIC2\Eric) (this seemed legit too)
SYSTEM (I suppose this is legit?)
Users (ERIC2\Users) (probably legit?)

Previous to this I had only checked Group or user names
in Control Panel\System\Advanced\User Profiles\Settings
and always saw just two profiles:

Eric2\Admin 944Kb
Eric2\Eric 227Mb

Are all the profiles at the top legit? I didn't create any of them.
Also, the file sizes for the two profiles immediately above are completely different. One being more than 200 times bigger than the other. Is this common?


A:Group or user names

Yes, all of those are legitimate.

You can check in your administrative tools and view all users/groups there. (Click Start menu > Run and type compmgmt.msc and hit 'ok')

From there you can click on Local Users and Groups where it will list all users and groups on your PC.

I am wondering if there is a way to custom set privileges in Windows 7. I have a user who needs more than standard user privileges, but less than an administrator. I found the Network Configuration Operator group that was working great for a while. But now the user needs access to a COM port USB adapter, which has settings that need to be changed. You get to those settings by going to Properties on the device on Device Manager, which a user cannot change. He really only needs to be able to change things like that on that one device, but I'm not sure that is possible. I really don't want to give more privileged than is necessary. I thought I read that there was an advanced group settings that could be set up, but I'm not sure where or how. 
We are set up on a workgroup, so there is no domain controller. I'm using Windows 7 Professional. 

A:Group or User Privledges

So I have been looking into this a little more and I'm not sure what to do. Is it possible to have a non-admin to be able to make any changes in device manager? Or anything in the computer management? If so how do I do this? 
It looks like from what I have found that if I make changes in the group or user policy all it will do is allow them to view or not view the settings. Is this the case? If so then can I set the user up as an admin and set the policy to "Enable only selected extensions" in the MMC user policy then uncheck everything except what would allow him to get into the computer management and the network settings that would allow him similar permissions as "Network Configuration Operator"? 
To clarify: 
This user needs the ability to change to a static ip address and change gateways and the like. Also he needs to be able to change settings on a com port to USB adapter to a different baud rate. And that is changed in the device settings under device management. The computer is a laptop running Windows 7 in a workgroup when at the office. There is no domain.

Group Policy settings simplify the administration of users and objects by letting administrators organize them into logical units, such as departments or locations and then assign the same settings, including security, appearance, and management options, to all employees in that group. There are hundreds of new policies available for Windows XP Professional, in addition to those provided for Windows 2000 Professional.

Is there any way to add an user to a Group Policy without specifying the location?
If I understood it properly, It seems that when you add an user using the Group Policy Manager Editor, it searches for the name and adds the location as a prefix of the name automatically. For example:
My-Computer/MyUser or Workgroup/MyGroup
I supose that it is not the same to add an user with the location specified for one place or another. For example, If MyUser has a prefix of My-Computer, the rules won't be applied for the Workgroup.
Becuase of that, I was wondering if there is anyway to specify it for a general location. I mean, I would like to have the same as in the default setup, where there is only "Administrator" in the policies without any kind of prefix.

You have had your share of problems lately! Keep your chin up!When you reformatted did you use killdisk? It might help if you did. Also be careful of putting your data back on this machine as you say, the infections could be coming from that.~~~~~~~~~You can run Killdisk to delete everything including any infections. This is a free progam and can be downloaded HERE. Put the program on a floppy disk or a CD.Then run a DOS disk, such as a Windows 98 start up disk, when the computer boots to DOS, type "C:" (without the quotes), push ENTER. Then type "fdisk" (without the quotes), push ENTER, then just push ENTER at each selection that you are prompted to make (in other words, just accept all defaults). You can download what you need HERE.Then reboot with your XP CD in the cd drive and reinstall Windows.Be careful about reinstalling your data as it may contain a virus or other malware.

A:can't get Group Policy to update for user

Hi Cliffmarcum,

Welcome to Vista Forums!

I'm not certain how you are deploying the GPO's, but the following article may help with procedures, guidelines, hints, troubleshooting tips, and so forth: Deploying Group Policy Using Windows Vista.

On a computer that isn't working, go to Start / All Programs / Accessories / right click on Command prompt and click on Run as Administrator. Type gpresult /v and enter. This should provide a great deal of information about how GP is affecting that machine (and possibly why it is not affecting that machine). Now login as that user on a computer that is working and do exactly the same thing. Compare the two results. I'd be willing to bet SOMETHING is different that's causing the problem.

The Event Viewer has a wealth of information regarding Group Policy. Unfortunately, it requires you to look at all of the different log files to find entries for Group Policy. There you'll find entries related to policy application, policy replication, and policy refresh, all of which can be useful when trying to track down a problem. There is not always a lot of information on specific Group Policy errors in the event logs, but remember that you can always search TechNet if you find errors you can't identify (or post them here and we'll see if we can help). The following article may help here: Troubleshooting Group Policy Using Event Logs.

(From: - which may contain additional helpful information.) Target Object Must Be in the Path of the GPO When you notice that a GPO setting is not affecting an object as it should, there is one more important setting-the object must be in the Scope of Management (SOM) of the GPO. This means that the object must be located under the node where the GPO is linked (even a child node will be sufficient). For example, none of the objects in the Marketing OU will be affected by a GPO that is linked to the Finance OU, as shown in Figure 3. The SOM of a GPO is from the node where it is linked, down through the Active Directory structure.
Figure 3 When OUs Are at the Same Level, GPOs Only Apply to the OU Where It Is Linked. I mention this because if these computers are looking to a different server instead of the new server (perhaps a different OU), they may not be able to receive the GPO.

I don't know why disabling re-direction doesn't help except perhaps it is only disabling the redirection process and not whatever is causing the computer to want to redirect or even perceive the old server. I feel certain that this is the root cause of the problem - but can't explain why it only applies to half of the computers as one would expect this to apply to all or none - and yet, if it is a difference between those that work and those that don't, it's pretty clearly the culprit.

Not knowing your setup, it's hard to suggest alternatives; however, if possible and reasonable (e.g., you use imaged machines and no user data is stored on them and everything is handled through the network including the logon and so forth), I would consider re-imaging those 15 machines to get rid of whatever is causing them to see the old server (make them like the computers that are working) and then apply the GPO and everything else should work fine on them like it does on the other computers. But your setup could be more complicated than that, so it's hard to see how much effort this would take - but I'd be willing to bet that this would solve the problem.

I hope this helps.

Good luck!

The NT way would be to place a batch file on the PC that you want the user in that local group. The batch file would contain the command "Net user <username> <localgroup> /add" (maybe not exact syntax) but you could test it to see if it works in W2K. If not there may be a tool in the resource kit.

Hi you could try this: Boot into safe mode, enable the built-in Administrator, sign out, and sign in to Administrator then change your account back to Administrators group and then disable the Administrator account again.

When I try to add a domain user to the local administrators group, I receive an error saying that the user is already a member of the administrators group. The thing is, that user is not in the member list of the administrators group. Why do I receive that message.

I did a copy of the problematic user in the Active Directory and I am able to add that "testuser" to the local administrators group without any problem.

From my point of view, the problem is not related to user's permissions because I did an exact copy of that user and I can add that "testuser" in the group.

Any solution?

I am having trouble with one of my users profiles. When they log on to their machine, the group policy will not update. When the user is in the department OU in active directory there should be restrictions on what they can change in IE etc and when I put them in a temp OU it should remove all group policy restrictions so that admin can make changes. This works for all except this one user. When I move them to the temp OU it still has all the restrictions in place. I have tried forcing gpupdate to no avail. Is there anything else I need to look at. It is only happening with a single user.

If I go to add a local user to the policy and it doesn't show. Tried adding any form of administrator user and when you restore it says that the administrator account is locked. Also when you restart it shows the administrator account disabled.

The computer refuses to add any users to the local group. Is there anyway I can add one so I can fix this laptop that a dumbass network guy set up without a restore.

I would think the network IT guy did that for a reason and if their policy is to lock out the admin account they want it that way. I would suggest you call the IT guy with an explanation as to why you need it and perhaps he will make an exception.

\What exactly do you need to do anyway?

I created a modified Windows 7 Pro 64 bit installation DVD using RT7lite. Im not sure which change i made that efefcts this, but after joining the domain, I am unable to add a domain user to the local admin group. I get an error saying could not find user. I verified the location is set to the domain and not the local pc. Any help would be appreciated. If needed, i can provide a list of changes i made on the DVD, if thats any help.
Thanks in advance.

Also noticed that when clicking "search Active Directory" under Network, it gives the eerror "The Active Directory Domain Services is currently unavailable." Im sure these are related. Google search hasnt given my any clue as to what it might be.

I teach seniors to use PCs and Win Recently the Senior Center upgraded to Win desktops Along with the upgrade I learned came permission for any and all members to use the computers there on setting security group up advice Need a user are only for per hour There are no controls whatever on users and what they do and where they go Need advice on setting up a user group security online It seems to me there ought to be some monitoring of user activity online The good news is it's a senior group most of whom barely know how to turn the PCs on I don't envision a large malware infection problem as one might have if the users were teens Win has built in tools to deal with this situation I have installed Microsoft Security Essentials Malwarebytes and Firefox I'm looking at browser add-ons such as HTTPS Everywhere Web Of Trust Ghostery Better Privacy and Adblock Plus I have most of these on my machines at home I don't want to create a big deal where there isn't one At least not yet These machines have to remain virus malware-free if I'm to be able to use them for teaching I'm wondering what your thinking is i e how much monitoring is enough and how much is a violation of privacy I know I will be asked by the Board to make a recommendation I'd appreciate your suggestions Thanks Wes N

A:Need advice on setting up a user group security

You might want to consider letting them stick with IE10 (with 64bit tabs - if possible)
Internet Explorer 10 Provides Safer Browsing

I think that you will find that there will be few changes to IE10's user interface in the years to come than in other browsers. Keeping things the same is important. The fewer add-ons and plug-ins the better. Less to maintain.

You might consider asking the center pay for a service like OpenDNS. You can globally block (to an extent) websites from the network with that DNS service. If they don't want to pay, then local HOSTS files should work.

Make each user account a standard user... or only let them use the guest account.

Hey all, I was wondering if there was any way I can bypass GP. I am on a system at an extension college campus with no designated IT. I have been asking them to fix the resolution on the PCs for over a month now and nothing has been done. It is stretched something awful and no one here likes it. I'd like to bypass the GP and change it. Is this doable?

A:Bypass Group Policy as limited user

Hi AmTheMan and welcome to the Forums.

Sorry but I cannot help you on this, and I don't think any other member will as, your I.T stop normal user's for a reason. Doing this will break the policy and you could get into trouble. I would suggest to keep at them about it

Okay we have a problem I am trying to automate The issue is our users are NOT Administrators on their machines Wooohooo you say Well I do too in most instances In all this is a plus but it does not help us when we have to remote desktop into these machines and then do something as the particular user Here is what I have envisoned so far - echo off SET P comp Type Computer Name IP Here SET P user Type User Name Name add user to local admins group mstsc exe v comp f pause remote user from local admins group Verify Admins group settings The problem with this script is I am not sure what command line functions would local to Admin User Add group temporarily. be used to display out a remote computers local group Also I don t know of a Add User to local Admin group temporarily. command that will remotely add a domain user to a remote machines local group as well as remove them Really all items with the in front I am a little unsure of Basically I am trying to automate a process of - Having the user log off - opening the MMC connecting to another computer adding in the user opening remote desktop doing the work and then removing the user from the group and then doublechecking to make sure the user is gone this last part is imperitive as we have had some machines with the local users left in the admins group and we want to avoid it I was thinking a net command may work like net group or net users but nothing I have come across in the way of switches are setup for remote connection Any thoughts nbsp

You can use the "net localgroup" command, which will add the selected user to a group you specify, if you need anymore help just ask

I searched Microsoft's website for an answer to this question but they're going all around it... And I can't get an answer to MY question.

In Access 2000, via the User and Group Accounts (in a secured database), is it possible to have a "Group" that has permissions to assign Users to Groups but NOT to have access to the design of the database?

If so, kindly let me know how to set this up.

I have a secured (user-level security) Access 2000 database.

I created a User Group called "Admin User". More or less, this User Group has access to just about the entire database... Similiar to the "Admins" User Group that Access creates.

My question is how do I grant access to my "Admin User" Group so they can grant (or take away) access to the end-users (ie "User and Group Accounts)?

I know I can give the Users in my "Admin User" Group the "Admins" permissions (created by Access), but then they would be able to edit my permissions (the creator)... which I don't want.

Hi Wireless/Wired Domain/User Group & Issues. I think the best place for this question is in Networking so forgive me if it s not I have a Vista Business laptop with a Wireless/Wired Domain/User & Group Issues. wireless connection to a small network of about machines I having a problem opening a quot Select Users or Groups quot dialog box during a MS wizard ConnWiz exe When I am supposed to open that dialog box I get the error mesasage quot The program cannot open the required dialog box because no locations can be found Close this message and try again quot If I try the same thing using the same wizard on a wired computer on the network I get no problems If I try to get to the same dialog box by using share permissions on the laptop I can do that it s just the wizard that doesn t work The only major difference I can tell between the wireless and wired connections is that the wireless laptop LAN connection has a SSID the wired computers do not Although when I tried connecting the laptop via a wired connection I got the same problem This network is not run off a domain Any help with this is really appreciated I m pulling my hair out over this Thanks nbsp

I work in a school with a CC3 (RM) network basically modified windows xp and 2000, i have joined a standard windows xp machine to the domain and added a user on the domain local admins group, however when this user logs in they can see the c drive and access other usually restricted parts of windows what they can not do is change the screen resolutions or right click on the task bar.

what would cause this to happen? my understanding is that once the user is in the local admin group they should have full access to everything on that laptop and rm will not supplt support because they do not support standard windows.

there is no way to block this kind of use from active directory is there ??
