Aston Secure Desktop is a security build of Aston 1.x branch. It possesses all the features of regular Aston shell, but constrains the ability to alter the admin-defined settings.This restricted version is highly recommended to Internet-cafes and kiosks administrators, colleges and companies authorities, and parents willing to find their Desktop settings unaltered after their kids incursions. This is also a perfect way out in other situations when users\' ability to customize their working area needs to be limited.Aston Secure Desktop has two modes - User mode and Admin mode.In order to switch to the Admin mode one needs to press the pre-defined hotkey combination (Ctrl Win Del) and enter the password. From within the Admin mode one can set the programs and applications to be available from the Main Menu, both Toolbars, Panels (regular and vertical) and Desktop. When in the Admin mode, one can also tweak the system date and time and the screen settings, the same concerns Themes and skins. In a word, the Admin mode of Aston Secure Desktop behaves like regular Aston shell.It is also possible to restrict some features in Microsoft Office programs via the corresponding tabs in Aston Options.In case the Administrator needs to apply the same settings to several computers, he may simply configure the shell for one computer and copy /Documents and Settings/%USERNAME%/Aston folder to the same folders of other machines.Unless one knows the admin password, he has to operate the User mode. User mode gives no opportunity to change the pre-defined settings - the user can only start the programs and apps permitted by the Administrator. The appearance of the shell (Themes and skins)cannot be re-designed either. But the usability of the shell is still very high.With Aston Shell Secure Desktop you get a restricted but still beautiful and powerful desktop enhancement. It no way limits the comfort and attractiveness of regular Aston.
