you cant stop this via GPO, you can however setup homedrives or redirection polices that redirect to the server when they save to something like my documents

Also setup some IT Policies that staff are made aware of.  Get them to sign them then bust them when they disobey them.  While your writing the usage policy include appropriate usage of intenet & email as well.  Technology can stop most things but scaring people works great too. Generally used in conjuction with technology policies are another great way to enforce 'stuff'

Not sure to be honest mate.  Sounds dangerous to enforce no write access to the C Drive.  I don't think it would work.  Temp files would need to be created to run apps, profiles have to write to documents and settings folder.  I think you'd be better of letting the users run as non-admin/power users and redirect their home Folders/My Documents onto the server.  Combine that with user education about not saving locally onto the C Drive would be less headache.  Locking down the whole C:\ would cause more issues I think.

Any thoughts Jay?
