    Angry Quake 3

    Some of our hard working students have brought Quake 3 into school

    Is there a GP setting to prevent this from being run?

    it doesn't need to install, it just runs.

    You should shove some flak down their throats. Once they're humiliated they'll stop playing.

    within group policy(user) take a look at the software restriction policy settings, you can either stop them running the program by its name or you can block the application based on its hash - then no matter what the name of it is it'll be blocked.

    in the larger networks I've setup I usually set it up so that all executables within home areas(always use unc paths, it won't work on mapped drives for some reason) and on flash drives/cd's are blocked.

    Do you have URL to read up on blocking software based on it's hash ?

    i have used this tool

    USB Drive Letter Manager

    This lets you choose the drive letter which USB drives take, stops cleashes with mapped drives, then i used software restriction policys,

    i have attached my software restrictions

    sounds like you students are about 3 months behind mine!!

    this was loads of fun.
