hi all

my first question,hope i dont sound to silly.

Am trying to lockdown a XP home box with internet card timing software onboard( hayman Is staff int cafe)). the internet card access software seems to lock down most of the box and runs well.
But ppl who dont want to pay for Int access can bring a copy of cmd.exe on a floppy run it and then uninstall/break the internet card acess software .(they know the path /s)
then for them all is well.free access
real user's who pay require floppy disk access,4 saveing emails etc.so cant do away with fdd

can i stop CMD.EXE being run from floppy?
can I disable cmd.exe being ran altogether (modify kernel) ?


all the best

If he change registry settings on worksations , the hacker can change it too , so  , he should use Group Policy to restrict users from any change
