    Hi,

    I would like to know how to block outgoing ping requests so that nobody could ping any other computers from my PC.

    Regards

    Most admins would leave ping open inside the internal network for diagnostics and troubleshooting.

    Normally, these would be blocked externally using a Firewall.

    Can be done by either a Hardware Firewall or Software Firewall.

    A firewall would be setup to drop ICMP packets

    Thank you once again but I have one more question how to prevent users from installing applications to program files folder via GPO or NTFS premissions are the only solution in this case?

    Hi I didnt and I still was able to install firefox as a user

    - and one more thing, I denied access (by NTFS permissions) to the inetpub folder for the specific user and also disable anonymous logon on to the website and when I login in as this user localy I cannot access this folder, so everything looks fine but when I then accessing the website, providing logon details, I can log in and see contents of the website, why is like that?

    Thank you in advance
