is there a way to control the grace period of the Windows and Office KMS activation.

I would like to specify that all systems have to reactivate every 45 days instead of the default 180 days..

also, is there a way to change them so they quit functioning instead of just warning the user to plug back into the office network to reactivate..

    I don't think there is a legal way to change the grace period for any Microsoft app, even if you like to decrease it. If there is a way to change it, it's not allowed.

    To control the use of an application like office, you better think about deploying the app over a terminal server solution, cause this gives you more (and centralized) control over your apps.
