I have been working on an application which runs a server on the local server. We are using windows 7 on the server machine and the users need admin rights over the machine. We are facing a problem w.r.t. the application if the system date and time are changed or the system time zone. We have a lot of machines which are spread across the country, so can't use a policy as the time is very limited. Is it possible to do with a batch file or an exe to block the admin to change time and timezone alone.

Thanks in advance

Correct implementation would be to create a dedicated user with administrative rights but with some restrictions, and start the application under this user account, rather than give the user full administrative rights just to start your application. –  Eugene Mayevski 'EldoS Corp Dec 23 '12 at 10:49
@EugeneMayevski'EldoSCorp : I agree with you .. but as of now we can not revert the things what are already done in a short notice :) –  nandu Dec 23 '12 at 10:51
