While the network login prompt is up you can press <CTRL><ALT><ESC> and get a task list to run apps, browse and delete files.  Is there a regitry setting to disable the task list?

I just consulted a book on the registry and I'm afraid there is no registry edit to do this.  Hell, you could re-write the windows code to put in that function!  Sorry,

If anyone can prove me wrong, please--I'd like to know what it is.  I've looked everywhere.

You can disable "Shut Down Command" using the Poledit.exe command which is found on the
CD-ROM distribution of WIN95 in the Admin\Apptools\Poledit directory.  This is done by checking the Disable Shut  Down Command box which is in the opening tree as follows,
     LocalUser
       Shell
         Restrictions
                DIsable Shut Down command.

Similar menu items on this list prohibit the Run command (NoRun)
and you can set Only Run Allowed Windows Applications (RestrictRun)

This will prevent someone from running any program except those allowed.
Refer to The Windows 95 Registry, A Survival Guide for Users by John Woram for
further network control details.

For God's sake, don't leave Poledit.exe installed on the drive of the workstation to be restricted.
