    Creating exam accounts and locking desktops and laptops down

    Hello,

    If anyone could help that would be great thanks

    Below is how i create the accounts but was wondering if anyone knows how to make it more secure?



    Create an ‘exam’ account and give the account administrator rights


    Putting wordpad and notepad on the desktop
    Start, all programs, accessories, RC on the icon, send to desktop

    Change the power settings
    Start, control panel, power options
    ‘Turn off the display’ and ‘put the ‘computer to sleep’ turn to never
    Change advanced power settings, change ‘hard disk’ and ‘display’ to never

    Disable word, excel, powerpoint and folder office 14
    Start, my computer, c:\, program files, Microsoft office, office 14
    RC on excel, properties, security, edit, add, locations (put in admin password), change the location to eg:- WGSB-08, ok,
    In the object name:- type ‘exam’, ok. Click ‘deny’ to all the tick boxes, apply ok
    Now do the same for ‘word’ and ‘powerpoint’ and up a level and on the folder ‘office 14’

    Disable IE
    You need to take ownership of the folder to be able to make any changes
    Start, my computer, c:\, program files, Internet explorer
    RC on IE icon, properties, security, edit, add, locations (put in admin password), change the location to eg:- WGSB-08, ok,
    In the object name:- type ‘exam’, ok. Click ‘deny’ to all the tick boxes, apply ok
    Desktop recycle bin delete
    RC on the desktop, personalise, ‘change desktop icons’ un tick ‘recycle bin’

    Disable all programs
    Start, RC all programs, ‘open all users’
    RC programs, securiuty, edit, add, locations (put in admin password), change the location to eg:- WGSB-08, ok,
    In the object name:- type ‘exam’, ok. Click ‘deny’ to all the tick boxes, apply ok
    Start, all programs, do the same for the folders ‘accessories’, ‘maintenance’. Delete IE and windows updates
    Disable toolbars
    RC on the start, properties, customise.
    Disable all the options here


    thanks Lee

    We use laptops with Ubuntu installed. Everything stripped out apart from gEdit.

    Are the laptops solely used for exams or are they used throughout the school and then for exams at exam time?

    We use locked down users in an "Exam" Security Group. They get a very limited Start menu (Wordpad or any specific Exam software required). That Security Group is denied access to any shared areas and is Internet banned. That way they can use machines loaded for day to day use, but not access anything they shouldn't. Students don't know the password, the machines are logged on by the invigilator if there are only one or two using computers, or by one of the IT team if there are a few of them.
