This laptop will be a standalone not on the domain.

Hi. Applocker comes with enterprise or ultimate editions of win7. Other editions can use ntds permissions. Executables are cmd.exe and mstsc.exe

Do you mean denying NTFS permissions for users   for the below

C:\Windows\System32\mstsc.exe
C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe

Right. But don't use deny but simply remove the permissions for"unwanted" users.

Finally

We do have Microsoft EES and I have licenses for enterprise and  ultimate editions as well .
If I install these versions on the laptops, will I be able to remove CMD prompt and RDP from accessories through Applocker.
Please post any tutorials as how to do this, if possible.

Thanks for you help
