    For my browsers,and internet facing apllications I force them in Sandboxie sandboxs with the drop my rights featue enabled.

    Before that,I in stalled http://cybercoyote.org/security/drop.shtml

    "Drop my rights" It has this kind "hackish" feel about setting it up,but it seemed to work well enough.

    Access Control Lists

    FajoXPSE ( http://www.fajo.de/portal/index.php?lang=en&option=content&task=view&id=6&Itemid=47 ) adds the security tab to right click properties. You can remove on a per directory/file basis access of Users of for instance startup directory, host file, task manager directory etc.

    Vista and Windows home versions have this functionality be default.


    Regedit provides simular functionality to remove access on Registry. For instance on startup registry keys in User space. Be sure to only remove add value, add subkey and delete, no other rights.

    Regards Kees
