I would like to set permissions on a C:/Program Files/Common Files/Microsoft
Shared folder for a certain group so that only Local Administrators have
rights to it. I only want this to affect a certain groups of people on their
computers.

How do I do this? I attempted disallowing the folder and this did not work
(in Windows Security settings under additional rules): C:\Program
Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\THEMES11 and this did not work.

Any suggestions to create GPO to block this folder? I look forward to any
reply.

Thanks in advance,

Toni P.

Use the gp editor on a XP/2003 machine and define a file system policy under
computer config>windows settings>security settings for that folder.
