therein lies the beauty of the domain policy's program blacklist... if
you are a member of the "CAD Users" group, which has local admin to the
CAD machines, you are not permitted to run certain programs by domain
policy, such as regedit.exe, services.msc, etc...

Except that Administrators can just take ownership and override the
permissions you specified. :)
