How can I apply policies and restrict features, such as removing common program groups from the Start Menu, of Standard accounts without affecting Administrator accounts?

I found a similar question here, but it was for Windows XP and I was unable to implement the answer that was suggested.

What version of Windows 7? – KCotreau Jul 31 '11 at 12:17
@KCotreau Actually, I'm working on Multipoint Server 2011, but it's almost the same. – AJaM Jul 31 '11 at 13:14

You could use Group Policy, or you could use a much simpler tool called 1st Security Agent

1st security agent would work best if its just for one local computer

Yeah, I kinda figured it out by playing around. I used GPOs to configure 6 user's policies. Kind of a hassle, repeating everything in each object, but it was the best solution I could find. – AJaM Jul 31 '11 at 13:16
hey AjaM, why didn't you vote my answer up? you marked it as the answer, but didn't think it was any good? – wizlog Jul 31 '11 at 16:33
Sorry. I'm still new to this website. – AJaM Aug 1 '11 at 6:48
You don't have to remake each GPO. You can just copy them or make templates. – surfasb Aug 1 '11 at 18:00
