    I can't do that without admin rights here. The real solution is not to use a password, but certificates

    Surely disabling access to Control Panel would/should do the trick?

    You would think so but that doesnt do it.

    Are the students local admins? If they are not they wont be able to get in there.

    So what is need to do this? I have the Control Panel disabled on the students but not the staff OU. Our issue is one staff member logged in to a students laptop and the student then figured out how to access this information. What I am trying to do is block access to manage wireless networks ONLY if possible. (The staff are local admins on there own machines... Students are not)


    Thanks

    This is not a technical solution: You should ask your SMT to create a policy that prevents this kind of behaviour. Then flambe the teacher that does this.
