Not gonna have much luck there. Local admins will have machine-level permissions to sidestep any locks you put in place. If you need managed desktops, local admin privileges need to be removed as a first step.

There aren't any. Hurdles implies effort. These would be..blades of grass.

Sometimes the answer simply is "you can't do that."

so no, you do not know of any methods to disable msconfig?  Or you do and you just don't feel that they are worth mentioning?
