We've had a sudden spate of kids doing this in the last month or so, havent had it happen before, then suddenly everyone is making command bat files. Must be something going round.
We used software restrictions in the group policy to stop them being able to actually run the bat files, but the little tykes still make them in the hope they will work

Haven't dabbled with this, but probably should. I'll go ask Google for more details unless anyone wants to weigh in with any tips/advice on setting up Software Restrictions in GP?

Try a search on the security forum and you should find some tips Ryan

Likewise we do this, the odd kid still creates them but we have sophos set to delete them when it scans their area as well.
