Windows 10: Can I somehow password protect Local Group Policy?
Can I somehow password protect Local Group Policy?
So here's my issue. I want to block some programs from ever running on the computer. I do that either by using applocker or Software Restriction policies blocking the name of the executables and their digital signature which works great.
The problem is I don't want to make a standard user account for the other users (whom I'm trying to prevent from using these programs) since we use a lot of programs that share settings which would make it incredibly inconvenient. Also I want the other users to be able to install programs freely without the administrator's permission.
So my question is is there a way to lock someone out of local group policy or playing with the registry without making a new account?
Have you thought about the default user?
If you set-up the default user profile with all the applications and you set them up you can then create standard users for each user and their accounts will be set-up as a copy of the daufult user profile including the apps and settings, you can then further control the security using local group policy, other than this you really need a server to handle security (which I know is not always a financially viable option.

You can also set up your own user and then make that the default user, although that is a little more complex

Thank you for the reply.
I will give the default user a try and see how that goes.
Is there a way to give standard users a little more leeway? I'm testing how standard users account work and every program I try to run is asking me for admin's password? Also tried to turn UAC off but I don't think it's possible as it's grayed out.
