Re: Unlocking Windows 7 as Admin w/o FUS
you know, I have to say that I find it strange that they've just completely dropped support for admins to be able to unlock a workstation by forcing a log off.
I know it made users loose their work, but at least that taught them to save their work... before wandering off leaving their PC unattended.
I wonder if there is a way that you could enable fast user switching, but limit the machine to only allow one regular user, yet still allow admin users to logon concurrently to other users
that'd still be done through fast user switching, then you'd use the task manager to logoff the other user once you'd logged on.
now that I realise that it can't be done, i'm finding it a bit pathetic that it's not enabled!
you can disable the lock workstation feature for the machines? that way users couldn't just lock the machine and leave for the day... but it also means that people can't lock the machines whilst they are going to collect paper from the printer.
there are a few suggestions on some places that suggest that you could use a screen saver to control the users session, so if the user got up and walked away for a half an hour, it'd log them off...
of course this still takes away the ability for a person in a lab to leave something running overnight.
I can't believe that they missed this kind of stuff out. it's pretty slack on MS's part.
I didn’t fight my way to the top of the food chain to be a vegetarian…
Im sick of people saying 'dont waste paper'. If trees wanted to live, they'd all carry guns.
