I am looking for a way to make the computer name tab grayed out in system properties with the user still being a local admin on the machine. Is there a registry hack or gp?

NO I need to see the properties, but the "computer name" needs to be grayed out, but still viewable.

The only solution to this is to remove the users local admin privilages, gerneral users should not be local admins. Indeed even if you were able to do this, and I can't see how it can be done, then as a local admin they can just undo it.

Its always better to work on the principle that you grant the user the minimal privilages they need.

Giving a user admin privilages and then trying to chip away at them to reduce there rights rarely works.
