juliusv,

From the top of my head, it should be possible to set up two local accounts: one with admin permissions and another – regular user account. Install and configure VEB to run under admin account and leave regular user account to an end user.

The PC has Win7 x64.
The Admin account is disabled, the Guest account is disabled too. This is default windows settings.
The PC user has his own account with Admin rights as this is required by used software.

However we do not trust the regular user as stupid as it can sound. The user is not a computer expert. We made hidden volume D: and setup veeam to backup the C: drive to this hidden partition.

However we must protect the veeam control panel from the user and hide it completely. Let veeam run in the background so to say.

This password protection feature is for example in NOD32 antivirus, and I think there is a way to hide it also, disable user frontend. Please is there workaround by registry hack or something.

Hi Julius,
Have you tried the suggested approach of using two separate accounts?
This password protection feature is for example in NOD32 antivirus, and I think there is a way to hide it also, disable user frontend.
Counted as a feature request. Thanks
