    Please keep on topic...

    Sorry if i missed it, but when you say u cant log on locally, and you changed the computer name - is the computer attached to a domain at all?

    If so, there lies the problem I'd guess - especially if u have something set in the GP that may suddenly come into affect with this new computer name [if it even allowed it] i.e. a "prevent local log on" type security policy

    Just remove staff & pupils from the computers - they'll all work perfectly from that point on

    A local high school here has a suite of PCs like that - all turned off - none working - show visitors pretending it is!
