I’m getting a demo today of the Microsoft Shared Computer Toolkit. This looks like an awesome solution for locking down a multi-user machine. Check out the details and the download here:
Microsoft Shared Computer Toolkit
Microsoft created the Shared Computer Toolkit to help make shared computers more reliable and less time-consuming to maintain. Unlike personal computers, shared computers are:
- Used by many different people who generally don’t know or trust each other
- Used in public places where personal privacy and security are big concerns
- Subjected to greater wear and tear due to their frequent use and public availability.
Even though it’s targeted at untrusted shared users, I could see this being very useful in my house.
