Hello all,

I have a problem where children are creating a batch file and then running it. I cant stop the messenger service because of software running that uses it, also i cant stop the command prompt for script processing.  I have found an ADM file to stop VBScript, can anyone help me change or even  add to it the command prompt.

PS all i want to do really is change the default action for the file types CMD and BAT to open in notepad and not run.

You can import the ADM file into your local system policy:

From the command prompt run MMC.EXE
From the file menu select "add/remove snapin" and then press add
Add the snapin "group Policy" and select it for the local machine

Navigate to the Administrative templates section for either the user or computer configuration

From the action menu select "add/remove templates"
The new ADM file setting will appear in the container and you will be able to configure the settings from there.

Beware that these settings will apply to everyone if configured from the computer configuration so do't disable something you may want to use later

HTH Cheers
