C:\>cacls "Program Files\appfolder" /e /t /p users:c
If you wish to undo these changes, then run
C:\>cacls "Program Files\appfolder" /e /t /p users:r
Some Programs Do Not Work If You Log On from Limited Account (Q307091)
provides a list of games that fall into this category.
Of course, "appfolder" is the actual name of the folder where the game
is installed. It is not literally appfolder.
Some applications also require registry changes, so post back with a
very specific subject line like "Need help changing registry permissions
for game" and I can help you make those changes.

Our department is going to install NT on one of our student Lab. The
How to set the folders' permissions on local disk to prevent student
setting or install games and other programs? The default permissions of
everyone to change c:\, %Systemroot%, etc. If we change them to allow
only domain users can read them, will the NT workstation still working?
Why Microsoft set the default permissions like these? Does anyone has
the same problem and how do you set them up?
Any help will greatly appreciate!
