    Question Disable Administrative Tools

    I'm having problems denying student access to administrative tools, i've set the GPO's to disable all control panel items however they can make shortcuts on a memory stick or on the desktop to "compmgmt.msc" for computer management, "taskschd.msc" for task scheduler and "mstsc" for remote desktop connection. Is there a GPO to turn off access to these?

    Also once they are in Task Scheduler it lets them create new tasks and delete existing tasks registered to their username.

    I think you can add mstsc.exe to the blocked program list in GPO and probably mmc.exe to stop the others?

    Can't try this as I am on my annual 5 week unpaid lay-off...(not holiday as the teachers keep calling it)...
