Operating System Version: Windows XP Pro w/ SP1
Problem Application Name & Version: GPEdit.msc
Problem Hardware Make & Model: N/A
Error Messages: N/A

Ok, so what I would like to do is on a stand-alone computer allow only certain access to certain programs.  I know that I can use the security tab to do this through each individual program; however, there are advantages to using gpedit.msc and compmgmt.msc.  When I tell gpedit not to show the control panel, it sets "no control panel" for ALL users.  Even the undeletable "Administrator" account.  I was wondering if there was a way to actually fix this problem.  Thanks for any help.

If I understand you correctly, you want to be able to restrict each user's ability to run certain application programs.

In XP, I can think of two good ways to do this:

1. Use Software Restriction Policies in Windows XP;en-us;310791

2. Use .ADM files in Group Policy using a 3rd party tool, such
as Policy Template Editor.

While this is an advanced topic, usually dealt with by tech types
like me, this should be enough to get you started

Hope this helps.
