How will blocking CMD help? If users have the right privileges they'll be able to do anything, and blocking CMD won't help. Remove the privileges and whatever programs they run they won't be able to do any damage or access areas they shouldn't be able to.

the problem is that some of the programs that are essential need to use cmd so we cant really remove it. also we cant lower the user privielegs , well its easy enough to do, but they need to be where they are. im also aware that even if cmd is blocked how it is in some other districts the students can just use command.com and unblock cmd.
believe me i would rather thouroughly restrict the other users but we cant.

use security administrator to set rights for each and every user. it blocks both cmd and command.com

Hello there akria u see you can not really stop cmd

you can download cmd's from the web and just use a gpedit.msc i believe and there they can activate there user rights


i do reccomend how ever that you put all student accounts on guest accounts and advanced the system security with novell systems and enchance the coding login script from there to block it

also set it to where not .exe .or such can be downloaded from student accoutns
