    If the folder resides in the same place on each PC and is called the same name a simple login script or batch file using CALCS.exe would sort that problem out for you.

    Hi thank for the quick reply

    So will calcs.exe add a user to the security if so this will work the folder is the same on every pc on the network.

    Edit looking at info on the web I have come up with this

    Code:
    echo y| cacls c:\Program Files\Folder /E /T /C /G Domian\user:F
    Would you agree with this/

    You can do this quite easily with group policy..

    Computer Configuration - Security Settings - File System.

    Add the file of folder you want to set security on.

    Re: adding folder security permission on all PCs

    I'm trying to restrict access to the all user's desktop for one user, can I deny access to this particular folder by using this setting in the group policy on the server?
    It's for a pupil with special needs who needs a desktop with 3 or 4 icons on.
