Foochar's Journal: Why IT locks down desktops

Journal by Foochar

This was a link on the front page, but since it was with a bunch of other microsoft stuff a lot of you may have skimmed right past it. The next time I have a user ask me why the desktops are locked down so tight I think I am going to hand them a copy of this article.

Whats worse is the stuff that won't run without 3 times the testing because it wants to put a file or registry key where it isn't allowed to. Or what happens more often is you unlock the desktop so that application can run...
