How many of you are giving your users only windows standard user permissions?
We've been doing this since we deployed 2002, I think, certainly since 2005. But with 2010 we're seeing new issues. We also switched from XP to Vista, so the folder structure and user profile setup is a little different, but not radically so.
The most common issue we're seeing is that people will periodically have their acad performance plummet. When this happens, we have learned, their system evet log will be full of error 10016, which is a DCOM error related to the windows debugger. WE're giving specific permissions to that DCOM object, which restores their CAD performance. Have any of you who give only limited permissions seeen similar issues?
We don't want to expand the permissions. The amount of mal-ware removal we have to deal with now is bad enough, but it is a very significant drop from what we used to deal with. And, the amount of software that people used to install for themselves was ridiculous. We have enough trouble convincing them that we only put software licensed to the office on office owned machines as it is.
