Has anyone found a way to deny a user account access to the established homegroup on a PC? Here is my scenario: Windows 7 x64 (RTM ... 3 user accounts. (Me, Wife, Kids). Me and Wifey are admins. Kids are standard. I have a partition created for me and wife to access files and docs, I dont want the kids to delete these. So, in the SECURITY Properties I denied their account all access to the FILES partition. This works perfectly when in the kids user account. I get "ACCESS DENIED" when trying to click on this partition. However, I also have a homegroup set up so that my laptop, and wife's laptop, can access this PC's files and media. So when I am in the KIDS standard account, and click on the homegroup, I am able to navigate to this PC and the files and media on the partition that I have DENIED in the security properties. (WTF Microsoft??) It appears the security preferences setup for the partition do not carry over to the homegroup network. Is there a way to disable the homegroup or deny access to the homegroup from this standard user account, but keep it active for my two admin accounts? I haven't found how to do this yet. Thought GPEdit would help... Any thoughts and suggestions would be appreciated.
