Windows 2008 ServerYou can use Group Policies to lock down a Terminal Server session on a Microsoft Windows Server 2008-based or Microsoft Windows 2000-based computer. With the following settings, even the administrator account will have restricted access. It is highly recommended that you create a new organizational unit instead of modifying the policies on an existing one.

Note: The use of these policies does not guarantee a secure computer, and you should use them only as a guideline. ID Security Suite offers you also a usb lock, device lock and folder lock solution.
