My company started implementing a company-wide program to restrict the OS privileges for each individual employee. My company PC crashed and IT did the re-intall after the hard ware was repaired and I immediately noticed I could not adjust the time, add/remove programs, run disk check/defrag, nor change the engergy saver setting among others on Windows XP based computers. First, I got annoyed of this new policy. But, an IT tech guy told me the company's IT dept needs to do this to prevent newbie computer users from installing spy wares, malware screen saver programs, and bootleged software. So, this is the easiest way to manage those not-so-tech-savvy employees by setting up the policy to the level where the lowest common denominators are. Even though I am not an expert on tech issues, I have known many issues through my 3 Macs, 2 Windows, and 1 Linux. Some of colleagues come to me for computer related issues when IT was not available. I could not believe what other employees at my company were installing on the company computers when this tech guy told me some stories. Now that I don't have an administrator privilege on this PC, I am very wary of what's in it. When I pluged this into my Belkin hub, my hub system software showed 2 different computer names on this PC. I think I am going to put this PC in DMC areas of my home network. I am curious to know if other forum members' employers/companies (your own companies, for that matter, if you are an owner) are doing. I am not in the banking nor in military industries where high securities are paramount.
