    Yep.. It can be done. I did it not so long ago, some of them can be a real pain in the arse to remove. but they can all be done via a REG file that you merge to the kids account at login.

    Hi mate thanks for the heads-up. You wouldn't happen to have any instructions on how this would work and what Reg file you need to edit would you? I would really appreciate that!! Sorry about the amount of time it's took me to reply I haven't stopped since the kids break up the network here at my new school is a right mess!!!

    There is a link on the Windows 7 Gotchas that is in the Windows 7 forum:

    How To Remove Windows 7 Libraries, Homegroup and Network

    I used the ADM template option this morning and it works ok for me.
