How do I Disable pressing windows flag +L command locking down a xp pc for a user.

Hi,
How do I Disable pressing the windows flag key +the L key command locking down a xp pc for a user.
It's just becoming a bit of a problem with shared pc's at my school with "users" walking away and locking
them with this command even though they leave their name so we know who it is!

Thanks kb

Are you in a windows 2000/2003 domain?

If so then you can use group policy to disable the locking function.

Note that you have to have SP2 installed for this to work because there was  a glitch that still allowed the machine to be locking using the windows + L key..but Microst claims to have fixed this in SP2

yes a 2000 domain thanks, but i dont really want to put SP2 on just yet as this has caused me quite a bit of trouble on my test machine and i don't want to put it on the network just yet.
