Are you using WinNT or Win95on the client computers ? It is possible but
awkard to make the W95 machines secure. NT is by its nature secure.

If you are using Win95 have a look back through the archives, there was a
pretty comprehensive discussion on the subject a month or so ago. But in my
opinion (don't start again!) the only practical way to make a secure system
is to use WinNT.
