Hi all, not sure if any of you have came across this before, however, I will explain.
We run a windows XP/Windows 7 Network with Server 2008 DC and 2008 functional level for AD/GP.

We use mandatory profiles so that staff and students can roam from PC to PC and see exactly the same things. However, it has been brought to our attention by a student that when logging on to the domain as themselves, they can unplug the CAT5 cable at a certain point at which Windows will use what appears to be a combination of their own profile and the default profile which opens everything up on the desktop and in the start menu. Obviously, this is a security risk and therefore I am wondering if anyone knows if there is a way when there is a sudden loss of network connectivity, the PC simply will not continue to process the logon and returns them to the logon screen or something along those lines.
Thanks in advance
