the msconfig only disables it from auto startup, you can click the icon. I want the programs disabled and users unable to reinstall them. Do you know how many times I personally uninstalled MSN, disabled Messenger as a service on our back office accounting computer only to find a co-owners kids reinstalled them so they could skip school and screw aound? Or an employee on their workstation?
I’m tempted to start sellng routers to parents with only ports 80, 25, 110 open… I know dozens of kids who piss around all semester on MSN, having completly fooled their parents into believing they ‘need’ broadband, until the teachers lay an ultimatum. Then they’re up for 3 days til 5 am rushing out their overdue homework and always miraculously pass and go onto the next grade. Where they do it again.
When they graduate, they’re in YOUR office letting the service phone ring 12 times til they can break off an MSN chat
