Windows XP Security Console

Security is an ever increasing priority when it comes to your computers safety. There are more and more threats out there every day you need to worry about as well as dealing with people you know such as fellow employees or even your friends! Applying security settings on your computer can help other users from causing intentional or unintentional damage to your computer.

The Windows XP Security Console is designed to allow you to easily apply various Windows restrictions, similar to the Group Policy Editor, to specific User accounts. It is compatible with Windows XP Home and Professional. It also enables Windows XP Professional users to assign group policies on a per-user basis, rather than a machine-wide basis.

Windows XP Home does not come with the Windows Group Policy Editor tool like XP Pro does so this utility comes in handy if you want to restrict certain features of Windows or restrict certain users from accessing these features.

With the Windows XP Security Console you can change settings for various items such as how the desktop is displayed or what is shown on the Start menu among other features.

This utility is not intended to bypass restrictions put in place by an Administrator, or to bypass security settings in a corporate environment. To use this utility, you must be a member of the Administrators group.

The licensed version of this utility contains a number of features that make applying restrictions to multiple users easier and faster. The unlicensed version is free and the individual licensed version is $10. Check out their website for more information and to download.
