    We have the Messenger service disabled on most of our workstations.
    Following on from the OP's question, is there any software out there that doesn't need installation on workstation and yet can still send messages when the Messenger service is disabled?

    Open a paint window and painstakingly draw your message out in freehand!

    We have italc in all suites here so you can send a message by right clicking on the screen in question.

    Pops up in a nice little box saying "message from admin" or "message from teacher"

    Also means if they fail to comply we can lock their screen or take a screen shot for evidence.

    I generally find you need to take the screenshot / video first because the first thing they do when you lock or message them is hit the power button

    Not if you make the power button do a standby instead.
    All is preserved on screen as it was when you press a key on the keyboard

    We don't enable it because kids sent each other messages using it through hyperlinking in Microsoft Word

    Sounds like you've got some clear kids, you could use GP Software policy to get round this, just don't think it will work as it'll block your messages. Might want to look at single user license for Dameware.

    You can also lock the keyboard\mouse with it too

    I found in my last school that knowing we were keeping an eye on them became a game to the students.

    We play the same game here. Banning them for not following the rules usually means I win.
