I suspect that you can also use Software Restriction Policy to prevent
execution of all of these. That would be my recommendation. As for the
icons, I know that sometimes the MS apps are special shell icons, so
removing them may be a reg hack, but definitely do-able through scripts.

Don't know about the others (there might be specific ADM templates for
them) but Windows Messenger can be controlled through User or Computer
Policy by going to Administrative Templates > Windows Components >
Windows Messenger.

The only way to remove the icons would be with some sort of
startup/logon script.

I was wondering if anyone knows how to stop the three Windows messaging
tools (MSN, Windows Messenger, Live) from launching using group policy
on a domain. Also is there a way to remove the icons for these three
programs so users do not even see them.

 

Thanks for any and all replies.

Lloyd
