    Does anyone know if there is a way to password protect the Run button on the
    start menu?

  2. I'm not sure about Password protecting it. But, there may be a GPO that
    disables the Run.. button except for members of the Administrators and
    certain other groups. You may want to dig a little and see if you can
    find that. (I'm thinking in secpol.msc maybe).

  3. Nah, not possible within Windows :eek:( You could write a C# application mind -
    I'm sure that way it can be :eek:)
    In Group Policy, you can remove it entirely however :eek:)

  4. Use the administrative templates in group policy.
    Same as in XP except you can get more granulare in Vista.
