Thank you for the quick response. I was just curious about the newer version, the older one is fine for my needs.
On our student accounts task manager is disabled, but when the student does the network cable trick, the temporary profile loads and task manager is enabled along with everything else. I assume the techs in my school that created the default account never setup limitations, so thats why I'm turning to you.
My question about hiding it would be, if edulock runs at startup which is my plan, will it attempt to open taskmanager and bring up a "task manager has been disabled" message everytime.
I'm sure I can push out the registry key to disable taskmanager on the local machine. Was just hoping edulock would take care of everything if possible.
Again, thank you for the great software and all the hard work!
The other "more brutish" way would be just doing a check every 500~ms to see if task manager is open, if it is close it, the open+hide. So if they can't/don't open it it won't do anything as such
Thank you for this wonderful app. I have used it to lock out students that turn off the wireless adapter (wittingly or unwittingly) on a particular model laptop that we have. The laptop has a hardware level switch that turns the adapter off and does not reset on reboot and has always been a real pain to deal with. By customising the message, I've got the students bugging their teacher to fix the problem and not me Problems reported with this model laptop have dropped dramatically since I deployed this.
We just sent out a GPO that changes the file permissions on task manager to prevent the temporary profile from accessing it. So we are about to deploy Edulock and sit bit and relax until the next kid tries to get smart.
I think we are going to pass the work to the teachers also. lol
Keep up the great work!
can i turn off the "steve21" and edulock text?
obviously this is steve's work and i recognize that, i would just rather the kids didn't have a shortcut to googling to find out what it is.

okay cool i'll try the regkey,
i actually couldn't find where the rest of the reg keys are documented. (ended up using reflector to find out!)
i'll double check the edulock text, maybe i'm wrong. I'll have to do that tomorrow when i'm in.
Sorry for double post, but just incase some people have this thread on subscribe.
There's a test version of EduLock that works with unrestricted TaskManager available to test here:
EduLock - Unrestricted TaskManager "Fix" Testers?
(Note, This isn't a full release, and should only be tested if you have unrestricted TaskManager. Else stick with the original version until service version finished)
hello and nice program but how can i deploy the program using the gpo in windows domain step by step ?
