    Is anybody familiar with the "DisallowRun" Key you can use in windows registry to lock applications?

    I found it works for HKCU only. Does anybody know how to do all users?

    Hi Capp,

    Reading through Description of HKEY_CURRENT_USER Registry Subkeys, it may be possible here:

    HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

    When I get a chance, I'll see if it works. Another option, if you run XP Pro, is using Software Restriction Policies.

    I tried it there, but no success. I am going to toy around with it a little more and see if I can get it to work with that Hive.

    Thanks for the help. :)

    Nope..it does not work by setting the HKEY_User\.default settings that way. I was pretty sure I had tried it, but I still can only get it to work for the HKCU.

    Any more ideas? :)

    Thanks
