    USB Drives + Games

    I have searched and have failed, and have now wandered aimlessly into this windows forum for help

    Basically since upgrading our computers, the students have found it fun to play Call of Duty (or CoD)... first they where copying the main files to thier home areas, and just running the .exe off the stick, so I banned all files with .pk3 et al and this stopped them...for a while.... now they are just installing the game straight on the memory stick and running the .exe from there to play.

    Is there anyway of disabling the running of exe's on the memory sticks without stopping the actually sticks to be used for legit reasons?

    We are running Windows 2000 clients, and Linux Servers, so a regedit or something that can be done per computer would be more helpful, also if can let me know how to do it in some simple language with no ancroyms, as I'm a bit crap with Windows

    Cheers,
