    Disable inset object in Wordpad

    Hi,

    We are setting up exam profiles and we are using Wordpad instead of MSoffice as it doesn't have spell checker or anything however there is an option in wordpad that says "insert object" and this allows you to insert MSWord objects into the document and therefore opens word. Is there anyway of disabling this feature or button for a OU or security group?

    Thanks

    The computers are used for normal lessons as well as exams therefore removing or making changes to office isn't practical.

    Ah right. Can you not put a GPO in place to disable Word been launched?

    We've put a GPO in place that stops the exe from launching however the insert object always over rides it. Is there a way to disable that feature? Thanks

    You cannot disable features within basic programs like Wordpad.

    We blocked all apps and white-listed wordpad using software restriction policies. It doesn't work when you go to insert objects.

    Does anyone know of any registry edits we can use to disable .doc and .docx or the "insert objects" from within wordpad that we can put in a logon and logoff script? Cheers
