I've setup Terminal Server on Windows Server 2003. I have problem with permission on this server. On server I have administrator account and some user accounts.

How can I block Control Panel, Administrative Tools, command prompt etc only for user which will be connecting via Remote Desktop?

I need allow Control Panel, Administrative Tools etc for Administartor and have them blocked only for some group.

I tried it in gpedit.msc but it's blocked for an Admin account.

Is there a simple tool for this purpose?

You need to configure a GPO with the restrictions you want and use Security Filtering to apply it to a specific group of users that does not include the Administrator account.
