Application Rights Auditor (freeware)
"BeyondTrust Application Rights Auditor makes it easy for companies to
identify the Windows applications that require users to have administrative
rights in order to run. Once those applications are identified, enterprises
can develop informed plans to remove users' administrative rights without any
application downtime, creating a more secure and compliant environment, and
lowering the cost of administering Windows computers".

This post is somewhat long, but I would highly appreciate if you can
read it and provide some feedback. Any hints, suggestions or criticism
regarding the design mentioned below is welcome. Thank you in advance.
I have to incorporate *very* *basic* user authentification and rights
management into one of my existing desktop programs. Essentially, I
need to be able to grant or deny a privilege to perform a specific
action within my program to given group of users. There are many
users, but only one of them will be using this program at any time. I
want to keep track (add, dele...User id management
I am new to ASP so please bear with me.
I want to create a site that users create accounts and log into the site.
I was able to create this using some of the login controls.
My only problem is I want to be able to query my database based upon who is signed in
I want to have the following query
Select * from mytable where userid = <Whoever is logged in>
How can I acomplish this with asp?
Thanks for the help

What is the best way to grant a 'power user' or 'user' rights to a specific
local file through Group Policy?
I'm having the hardest time figuring a decent way to do this.
ex: I roll out an application that resides in 'Program Files' and users
only have 'read & execute' rights. if I find out later that a certain group
needs 'write' rights to a certain '*.ini' file or something, how can this
be done without visiting and/or reimaging every workstation?
Maybe this is an obvious question and I'm missing something fun...User Application Rights
On a recently installed UserApp, I noticed this error in the logs:
Could not retrieve email server information from [cn=Default
I assume this is a directory rights issue. I messed with the rights a
bit, but I could not get rid of this error without providing wide open
rights to the User App.
What rights are needed to the Security container for the UserApp? And
which ID is actually being used to perform these actions? I thought it
was the UserApp admin, but I think it is actually the Identity assigned
to the UserApp driver itself, is t...Manage Users For This Role / Manage Roles For This User Question
In the roles/user management pages there is a link called Manage Users For This Role and Manage Roles For This User respectively. I want non Admins to be able to see these pages, and currently I have it so that they can see the manage users and manage roles pages. However, when a non admin clicks on Manage Users For This Role or Manage Roles For This User link it does not display the control, just an empty page. I can get around this by giving edit rights to the page, but I do not want them to have edit rights for the page. Any ideas?
...Ebay user ID vs Comcast user ID
Name: Michael P Stevens
Product: eBay Companion
Summary: Ebay user ID vs Comcast user ID
The "Companion" automatically brings up "mpstvns" as
my user ID for Ebay. It has been changed, cannot be
accessed or used until the merging of ebay use is
completed in about 30 days. My new user ID for ebay
Can the "Companion" be adjusted to reflect this or
will it be automatic when the merge is completed? I
do not know if this is a "bug" or not.

I need to create groups of users (Distributors) and in those groups,
allow one of them to be able to create new users for that group.
Each Distributor managing their own group of users.
I am wondering if this could or should be a module or should I start hacking the source.?
For this instance, I'd say create yourself a custom module. The "hack the source" approach tends to introduce issues over time. :-)Bill KnausBlog: http://life.billknaus.com/blogs/ymmv/Website: http://billknaus.com/

My major client operates out of a secure facility such that I only have
access to their 35 or so machines 7:00 am to 5:00 pm (07:00 to 17:00)
Monday through Friday. Consequently routine maintenance is a tough thing to
do. Most of the users turn off their machines every evening so leaving them
running or asking the users to leave them on one night a week or something
like that is a non-starter.
To deal with this I have put together a framework that hides the "Turn Off
Computer" button and replaces it with a similar looking button that actuates

I know that the ASP.NET Configuration Handler has been removed from Beta 2, but what is now the preferred way to manage users and roles in a deployed application? E.g. I've deployed the Personal Web Site Starter Kit to a web server. Now I want to add a user with the role "Administrator" to be able to access the /Admin area. How do I do that without having to edit the database tables directly or having to write my own user management code? ASP.NET 2.0 is supposed to reduce the amount of code I have to write, isn't it?
I am having teh same problem/question can anyone suggest any solutio...Allowing users to be managed in the application
I am playing round with some of the new users/roles stuff in ASP.NET 2.0 and I am pretty impressed at what it can do.
I need a way of providing administrator functions from within my site.
You see, I can allow users to register themselves to the application.
When they do that, I will most likely assign them a default role (or
none at all). I would like then to allow an administrator user to be
able to come in, view a list of users and perform certain tasks:
- Change their roles
- Block/remove accounts
- view/update other exciting information about the user

I'm developing a site on which it's a requirement for a user to login with
user id and password to gain access. The site is running on IIS and binding
to an LDAP (X500) directory where data is held. What I ideally wanted to do
was use a session type variable (as can be achieved in ASP) but despite
searching many perl websites and reference books I've found nothing that
suggests how this can be achieved with perl on an IIS webserver - everything
seems to point to the use of Apache and it's session management
capabilities. The only other alternative, I guess, is cookies wh...Rights required to log other users out?
We have implemented a group policy which activates the screen saver and
locks the workstation after 15 minutes on inactivity.
I have found that if I come across a workstation which is locked (and the
user isn't around) I am able to login as a user with supervisor to the
tree root, which logs the current user out. However, if another user who
doesn't have S at the root attempts to login at the lock screen, they get
a message that says only the current user or system administrator can
