Do you mean the date.exe AND the 'clock' properties?

I have tracking software that monitors when (time and date) that users have accomplished tasks. I have found that they are manipulating the time and date by changing the system date or time and having it LOOK like they did their jobs at a time when they didn't. I want to prevent date and/or time changing ability.

Rfb,
  You can disable this right by using the system policy editor..
  This comes with the Windows 95 Resource Kit.
  I don't have it on the system at the moment, so can't tell you the exact key you need to change, but it's in there !
