I have several computers what I am setting up for a school that does not have a domain.
They all run Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 and the kids will all be using a Standard User account.
I am trying to lock down the computers so the kids can't re-enable features I have disabled like the webcam and Skype.
I have used the "Customize..." button in Taskbar and Start Menu Properties to hide Control Panels, etc...
I would like to now disable the "Customize..." button so my changes cannot be undone.
I think I should be able to do this through the registry, I just don't know the proper keys.
Additionally, I'm open to any suggestions regarding anything else that should be disabled, or any other means of accomplishing what I"m trying to do.
