How to stop students installing local applications
Posted on 2007-04-10
I have a college who wants me to lock down the client machines in a particular room, because the
students keep installing MSN, Limewire etc on the computers.
Its a windows 2000 AD network. When the a student logs in from the client it maps a drive to the server which points to their home directory (H). The login script also sets up the nearest printer according to location. The users only need access to the printer in the local area (Student Room). I understand (from the last company) not giving adminstrator rights to the local machines for the students inhibits this script from running and therfore problems occur. Is there a way to stop the students installing all these programs without preventing them working properly.
Hope you can help
