    Oh Junior Tech used to have his speakers so loud it did actually wake the dead (which was handy since we had a vacancy for a general studies teacher).

    I made a script so I could remotely make his PC burp. He soon switched his speakers off.

    One of my techniques too

    I love watching them then try to 'find' the site another way by frantically searching Google.
    They don't know the power of the 'darkside'....

    Or when they try and go 'back' in the browser until they can see the links again, keep trying them only to find they now 'don't work'.

    repeat and it doesn't take long till they give up.

    Wouldn't it be terrible to admit that you worked in a school where a select few students repeatedly tried what they could to stick things like BackOrifice onto Win95/98 machines but they found that they couldn't (because it was already on there) and the computer used to tell them off, poke its tongue out (eject CD drawer) and inform them that their computer and internet access would now be locked until they came in to see the IT staff.

    Yeah ... that would be terrible to admit that ...

    Shame I don't know anyone who would use trojan-based, remote control software like that.

    I use RM tutor 4 as part of CC4.

    If they cross me twice, I just use the 'Log Off Client' feature and disable their account in the AD.
    Then when they come to the Office to moan, I send them off to the head of ICT to explain what they did and why

    We use Impero, which allows you to mute the sound remotely. We also have a 'special' Impero policy group reserved for certain students which blocks a wide range of programs too, even quite innocent things like MS Paint because they would rather spend their time doodling than working.

    A favourite trick of mine when I find students listening to music on USB memory devices is to take control of their PC, select all the music files and drag them towards the recycle bin.... this generally results in the memory device being removed rapidly

    Instant Kill.bat
    @ECHO OFF
    cls
    SET /P comp=[Kill]
    shutdown -m %comp% -s -f -t 00
    exit
    I can't believe you actually let kids on youtube!

    ITalc is another easy one to set up. You get the option to lock them out with a massive padlock picture popping up on screen. You ort to see their faces when I first ran it!!!!

    We have smartcache here locked to only allow identified stations through so each station is running the ident daemon. Our fun is to kill that remotely & then watch as they struggle to find any website that works. Saves having to carry out a full ban & once the station is rebooted all works again

    Is there a way that this script can close down multiple pc's and without entering the machine into Dos.

    Thanks in advance.
