    I've got a System with Multiple Drives.

    I'm trying to figure out how to do a few things in Windows 7 X64

    1) Control what programs run on Startup for each user, so for example a guest user wouldn't have the Sony & Zune software start on login (It's keyed to the HKEY_Localmachine can these just be moved to HKEY_USERS ?)

    2) Prevent Access / Viewing of the Secondary Drives (So if they use File Explorer they don't even see the drives)

    1. Yes you can there is no problem with doing that.

    2. Change the NTFS permissions on the files/folders to the users/groups you want. Then change everyone permission to deny.

    Or you can open up that users ntuser.dat hive in the registry and add the start up entries to that specific users HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run location
    Then unload that users hive.

    Basically make it profile based control instead of system based
