How can be prevented the execution of the net send command on the NT4 workstations? Is it possible to use the policy editor on the server and where has it to be arranged?

move the command to another directory, then change directory permissions with cacls.exe, or better xcacls.exe, as you like.
Keep in mind that logon scripts are executed wit the user's permissions, so it won't be usefull if you need net there.

BTW, net send does not work if there is no messaging service running (don't know the exact name, sorry)

It's the messenger service.
Do users need to use the NET command from the cmd prompt ?  You could always remove NET.EXE

What do you need?
Similar to above comments, not knowing what is needed, simple answer can be

(1) Remove it's protocol
(2) Remove cable that runs from PC to the network

Part of answer depends on the users, their education, needs, and capabilities. Note there is a big difference between a casual user freshman just trying to get through class, and a person who always carries a pocketful of tools, such as boot disk with O/S and networking commands such as "Net".

Example: To use MS-Word to write a book, you need no cable or command like "net send", or policy, or login, until ready to share a proof copy with friends.
