12.9. Restrict what can be done on your computer

If you share your computer with others and you are the primary user, you might want to exercise some control over the tasks other users can perform when logged onto the computer. In a home office where the kids also use the computer, you're sure to want to apply some restrictions to the actions the kids can take.

Restrictions are easy to achieve in a domain environment because you can apply them on a group or user basis through group policies applied at the domain or organizational unit (OU) level. It isn't quite as easy without a domain, but it can be done. On a standalone computer in a workgroup, you can ensure different levels of restriction and protection through a handful of different methods, starting with user accounts and groups.
