View Full Version : RE: Disable Startup Programs for one user only

I'm using XP Pro. I'd like to eliminate any programs that use extra RAM that
aren't essential for the computer to run. I'm running Comodo Personal
Firewall Pro and Symantec Anti-Virus Corporate Edition. Both of those need to
stay running. I think the group policy can do what I need. Does it also
handle services? Or can those only be disabled on a whole machine basis?

Thanks!

Open a run Command and type in:
gpedit.msc click [OK]
On the group Policy locate this option under:
User Configuration
[ ] Software Settings
[ ] Windows Settings
[-] Administrative Templates
[ ] Windows Components
[-] Internet Explorer
Here you can set the security feature to be allowed fro that user
like Download, Media Player, Flash Player, Toolbars use.

[&] Start Menu and Taskbar
[-] Dekstop
Active Desktop = Look here and see what item you want to
disable for that user
Active Directory =
[ ] Control panel
[ ] Shared Folder
[+] Network
[ -] System
User profile
Scripts
Ctrl+Alt+Del Options
Logon = Look in the Right pane/Window and you will see:
Run these programs at user logon = click Properties and you can
set the Programs for this user Start Up
this will proceed the Windows Default StartUp programs and will
load only these programs assigned to this user.
* The same with reset of Runonce and Legacy run list.

Group Policy
Power Management
[-] Internet Communication Management
Internet Communication = You can Disable which service you
think is unneeded for that user.
Again, these services will be in the background and waiting for to be
accessed, but because the user doesn't have permissions can access them and
the resources will be saved for the running services that the user allowed to
access or share.
Also you can take them off from here on the Registry Editor:
[+]HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Run = Remove the
programs you don't want that user to have on Start Up.
HTH.

Hi,
Try to take them from the Start Up option by doing this:
Open windows explorer and locate this path:
C:\Documents and Settings \Local user\StartUp Menu\Programs\StartUp = Look
in the right pane/window and you will find the programs running/starting at
startUp, remove what you don't want, also you can remove the programs from
Programs and that user will have this program on their list of app and can't
use it.
Hope this what you are after.
