    students locking pcs

    Hi

    Please can someone help me.

    I have set the following option to stop students locking machines.

    User configuration>Admin Templates> System? C-ALT-DEL options> remove lock computer

    But they are still managing it. I think they are doing it through windows key and L

    Does anyone have a group policy that will stop this or a adm that I can import to stop this.

    Thanks for all your help.

    Richard

    I think what you'll need to do is to enable the following policy;

    User Configuration->Admin Templates->Windows Components->Windows Explorer->Turn off Windows+X hotkeys

    in conjunction with the 'Remove Lock Computer' policy which will stop students from using either way to lock their machines.

    This does disable all the other WinKey+? shortcuts as well, but as none of them are required by our students it hasn't been a problem for us.

    Shielder is correct! You need to disable the Windows hotkeys too.

    on one of the clients do a gpresult to see if the relevant policies are applying and also do a gpupdate /force and reboot and when you log back on do a gpresult again to see if it applies

    also check the hierarchy of the group policies there may be one higher up explicitly allowing them access to those features.

    maybe in group policy or the screen saver settings in the profile it is set to ask for a password once its been activated.
