    Problem With Dreamweaver MX

    I have recently just caught a student in the c:/ drive messing on with the documents and settings. He got there through Dreamweaver MX. Has anyone any ideas how to stop it.

    We get the same on Dreamweaver 8. Its not an issue as such they cannot change anything. Try hiding the C drive.

    The C:/ drive is hidden in group policy! I was watching the lad, (who isnt an idiot) make an html with pings in it. He then changed it to a .bat and ran it! Even tho cmd prompt is disabled!

    Instead of hiding the C drive, actually prevent access to it.

    The option is in gpedit.msc in the same section as the "hide access to these drives" which I'm assuming you used to hide C in the first place.

    We've done that here and no-one can get in - the only downside is if you want to get into the C drive you need to alter the gpedit.msc setting so that you can get in (might be another way, but I don't know it!).

    small price to pay to stop student messing with docs&settings and Windows folders.

    This could end up going the same way a long post I remember from a couple of months ago about what to allow students to do on the workstations.

    The jist of it was that everyone had a different opinion on the matter and a different way of approaching it. Initially I was very much for locking the system down as much as possible but then it only needs a fairly smart KS4/5 student to find a way around.

    If you've got Serif MoviePlus 5 you may have the same problem there too.
