This is possible with a Windows 95 "Policy", but the only good way to
enforce it is to use an NT server domain and place the newly created
policy file "config.pol" in the NETLOGON directory. You'll need to use
user-level security on the W95 machines, and you'll need to require (in
the policy) a valid user logon (and you can dictate which NT domain shall
be used, too). It's quite a neat feature, although it too can be slightly
I used this in a computer store earlier this year. We set up a policy
which took away a lot of functionality for the "demo" logon, gave the demo
logon a blank password, and required a validated logon to use the
computer. This restricted what demo users could do, especially browse our
network and play/add DOS games.
