As an administrator, can I disable the folder options in the control panel for other accounts than mine? What's the possible way of doing this?

There's a Group Policy called "Removes* the Folder Options menu item from the Tools menu". It's under User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Windows Explorer.

* not my typo. That's what I see under XP. (you'd expect "remove" not "removes")

Thank you. This will disable the 'folder options' for the user which is logged in (that is the administrator) and it is not a universal setting. All the other accounts will still be able to access 'folder options'. I want just opposite of it. What I want is full access for me and no access for other accounts. Also, Currently I have Windows 7 installed as main OS. Can you please tell me of any option for Windows 7? – Sarveshwar Apr 16 '10 at 7:44
