I am a network admin of a schools system and we are having some issues with students copying games to there home directory. I was wanted to know if there is a way to prevent .exe from be copied to the files server? I know when you try and copy a autorun.inf file it will error out so i did not know if there was something in Active Directory i could do or in the registry of the file server or some third party app. I thought i could also run a script ever night deleting .exe's but I would rather stop them from being on there to begin with. Thanks for your help in advanced.

If you are using Server 2003 R2 or above, you can configure File Server Resource Manager to screen file types. Please refer to the Technet guide for more info - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc755603(WS.10).aspx

I also like the File Server Resource Mgr idea.  Look at the screenshot.  You can block  executables...and many other types using the screens.
 
Thanks
