Hello,

Is there a way that I can lock time/date so that no one can change it without a password or something? I really need to be able to do this! :) 
Thanks

You need an admin account to change date and time so wouldn't setting a password to all admin achieve the purpose?

What changes do they need to make in IE on a regular basis? Do they really need admin rights to be able to make these changes? A couple of suggestions.

Don't give them admin rights unless they absolutely need it.


Do they have their own accounts or is there a common account in use?


Personally I would create a new account - then using Local Security Policy > User Rights Assignments assign that account to the "Change the system time" and remove the default "Administrators" group permissions but leave the Local System. (Bit messy but if they need admin rights elsewhere it will have to do) this will have to be done on each PC.

You should be able to do this quite easily via group policy settings. Don't ask me how though; I'm on the wrong side of the corporate IT department fence... :-)
