    In an ideal world we would but at the time we migrated to Windows XP virtually all our software was Windows 98 based and simply wouldn't run without doctoring permissions. Software that had it's own (or used the old windows 3.11 file manager) was in the minority so wasn't such a problem to refuse a couplf of apps but if we'd turned down every app that required write permissions at the time we wouldnt have had any software on our network apart from MS office!

    We're moving to Windows 7 soon which is inherently better able to deal with old programs that write to locations they shouldn't as it can redirect it on the fly. That plus App-V should mean we don't have to make compromises with file permisions again in future.
