    Try looking at these recommendations for implementing software restrictons using the group policy. Keep in mind here that since you will use the hash rule your software restriction policy will strictly depend on the version of the application you want to block. So with new service pack deployment the content will change. Also read this information, it might be helpful.

    Re: how to disable command.com ?

    I'm always intrigued by the desire to stop users running a command prompt. What have you seen that they're able to do at the prompt that they can't do when they're "inside" Windows?

    They can type all sorts of commands but, assuming your file permissions are good, they're not going to cause any real harm. If your permissions are not good then they can wreak havoc anyway - VBA in Word, for example, will let them do all sorts of exciting things :-)

    Is it just that as an administrator you know that you can do clever things at a prompt which you don't want kids to do? If so, you really shouldn't have a problem as long as they can't get to management type apps.

    It's a reasonable precaution if your using it as part of a larger over-arcing defence in depth security model. Obligatory Wikipedia link follows:
