Hi jscher2000,

Yes. I do not want non-administrator domain users to install Firefox. Most of the domain users are using Windows XP and 7 Professional. Once the Firebox executable file is clicked, Windows does prompt Windows Security message box for administrator username and password. However, the installation process is proceed, even though no login information is inserted and domain user clicked "NO" .By default, any of the application installation process will be stopped once "NO" option is clicked. Please advise. Thanks
