    Thanks @DSapseid, dangerously close - that is the right-click context menu blocked, however users can still Alt+Click on a word to open the research pane! I know how to disable keyboard shortcuts, but not keyboard-and-mouse combinations. This is beyond stupid now!

    The brutal autohotkey approach again to disable alt + click

    Code:
    !LButton::Return
    !RButton::Return

    Thus disabling the mouse altogether? Unplugging it would achieve the same, of course.

    Er, should only disable clicking when the alt is held down, at least on the three machines I tested it upon.

    Okay, so what's the full autohotkey script file, and how do I assign it?

    Code:
    #NoEnv 
    #NoTrayIcon 
    #SingleInstance force
    
    !LButton::Return
    !RButton::Return
    
    ;Exit Routine
    !f1::
    ExitApp
    Should do it fine. Download the installer AutoHotkey Download to enable you to compile the script into an exe. This then can be assigned via Group Policy in the user logon / logoff scripts section.

    You probably wont want to include the "Exit Routine" as alt+f1 closes the exe, I had it in for testing / emergency use (on a fairly obscure key combo).
