Blocking access to the Wireless Icon in the Task Bar/ System Tray - GPO?
Does anyone know an easy way to block access to the Wireless icon in the bottom right hand of the desktop?
I've discovered that students can log into other SSID's this morning and its causing problems with students access stuff they shouldn't be able to.
I employed an IT company to install my network over the summer, won't say who obviously. Students didn't have access to anything in that corner of the screen, but I had some requests for Volume control and date and time settings. So I asked the company to give the student user access to this. They did so but also gave them access to the full task bar/ system tray. Now the students can access the wireless settings, as well as. Pretty sure the change was made in group policy, so just wondering if anyone had any thoughts as to where it would be or how to block this?

The only real way is to disable the status tray in the bottom right corner.
This has other issues though if you do it.

I block the entire tray apart from the clock for the kids here.
