LOL, I think he means in Win7. big_smile

Re: disabling users?

While a universal ban-your-neighbor button has a certain amount of appeal, I'm looking to create users in Windows Seven but have them be disabled or no-login.  I can do this in XP all day long.  No clue as to how this works in Win7.

Re: disabling users?

You should be able to do that with Win7 Enterprise and Active Directory on a domain, just like you can with XP and Vista.
I'm not sure what environment you're using.

Re: disabling users?

Very intriguing...hmm.

CONTROL PANEL >> SYSTEM AND SECURITY >> ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS >> COMPUTER MANAGEMENT?

In Computer Management (Local) > System Tools > Local Users and Groups > Users - you may have that exact ability. I never tried to learn more about it as far as command line options and such, but Holy Cow if you can research this that'll be something, eh?

I must admit...why this option? (Disabling...Lockout I can barely understand) I've used it to piss my mother-in-law off in the past.

The following sentence is false.
The preceding sentence is true.

Re: disabling users?

Yah, got that this afternoon.  I was hung up looking dorectly at the user control panel applet.  That used to work.  I hate it when msft cleans up the gui back doors......

At home I use this option to setup occasional/guest users.  When they aren't here, their uid gets disabled.  Their files/settings/faves are retained until next time.


thanks

Re: disabling users?

I see. You can also go this route...

WIN+R > CONTROL USERPASSWORDS2 > ADVANCED TAB > ADVANCED
