dns question

Greetings,

I have recently had an issue with the dns address on a windows xp
professional workstation... some background.

I have a windows domain environment, with sbs server 2003 R2 and 20 XP
pro workstations.

My work stations point to the server for DNS in the network settings
tcp/ip dialog box. My ip's are all static, as well as the gateway.

A recent virus/malware renamed the dns address to some address in
russia. how can I lockdown the dns settings so that no program,
malware, etc. can make changes to it. I assume something at the server
level in group policy can handle this, but need some help in getting
there. Anything is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Since the user who got infested had to have administrative rights in order
to make such changes - your answer is that you cannot. Take away
administrative rights and do not use the computer daily with such rights.

you had cross-posted then you wouldn't have to go check the other

More of your pretentious condescension.
