Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

If there is a way, to deny local-system on a client machine to stop services with GPO?. The client is in a domain.

Example, making a anti-virus service that can't be disabled by local-system. I don't want to hurt other local-system actions (like log on, log off and such).

Thanks for help.

Do you mean the system account? –  Dr.Ü May 13 '13 at 13:03
Indeed, Local-System account. –  Idan Cohen May 13 '13 at 13:04
I would go over to the Serverfault / Superuser guys... maybe they know a way... –  Dr.Ü May 13 '13 at 13:09
OK, I was under the impression that Im in the right place, But I will go to ask there. –  Idan Cohen May 13 '13 at 13:29
Who shall be able to stop the service at shutdown if not the LocalSystem account? –  Werner Henze May 14 '13 at 13:25
