Hi

I am migrating my PC from Xp to windows 7. I am building a image on windows 7 professional image for the students.
I thought of manually going to all users start menu and deleting programs ,so that when they login in they have limited
Programs listed for security reasons.
I have deleted RDP connection and command prompt from the accessories.

Please let me know if there are any other programs that needs to be deleted in windows 7 for student restricted access.
and also the shortcut to programs that I need to put on the desktop for the students to have easy access.

Any help much appreciated.

Thanks

First of all, do not delete any programs.  Rather uninstall any you do not want on the student's PC's.  Control Panel|Programs and Features.

But I am not sure what to advise what programs or types of programs you want or do not want.  This will of course depend on age, subjects involved, etc.  I suspect you are the only person who can do that.  What you definitely do want is antivirus and a firewall.  A firewall comes with Win 7 and you can install Microsoft Security Essentials for free.

Firstly we have our licenced antivirus for our organisation, Is it recommended to install
Microsoft Security Essentials  on top of this?

Secondly , I am aware of the programs that needs to be installed department wise ,but under accessories I have  removed  command prompt and RDP.
I have deleted administrative tools folder under all programs

Please let me know if I need to delete anything else.

Thanks

If the licensed antivirus is active (running all the time) then NO.

You might also consider using the HOSTS file to block internet access to undesirable sites.

You can add sites that you choose to block.  On the mvps.org page there is a host.zip file which will allow you to add hundreds of sites known to have porn, malware, etc.
