    Exe files

    Those pesky kids are still installing and getting exe files for games. Is there a way I can delete them for example like a scheduled task on a daily basis. Everytime I delete them they get them back, and I don't want to keep searching their home directories to delete them all ideally.

    Is there some network scanner software to delete said files?

    Just stop them from saving them. Our samba fileserver can veto certain filenames and extensions, some virusscanners can do this too.

    This is the default on RM networks and it works wonders.

    I can highly recommend EduSweep, you shouldn't have any problems with it at FCC.

    Although RM are just utlising the software restrictions that exist in group policy anyway, they just have a fancy front end to control it.

    EduSweep is great - but as others say - its much better to prevent the games being being run in the first place with a software restriction policy.
