    Exactly - disable the computer account in AD... then when they bring it in it has some catastrophic hard disk failure et voila! It's returned with Windows 7...

    All classroom network pc's upgraded to win7.

    Theres a handful of machines built as xp sp3 standalones that dont go anywhere near the network which I'll keep going for depts as long as the hardware keeps running. They are only use for word processing or for some music software and dont cause me any issues past an occasional blown power supply (Dodgy capacitors - and theres a pile of scrap base units in store for parts donors so the fix is zero cost)
