Hi I guess you have set the "Prevent Help menu from Start Menu" policy setting (User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Start Menu and Taskbar)? What is important to know is HOW the users are able to access that app, is it a shortcut in Start menu, is it through Run, or whatever? I guess you have other issues than just "HelpPane.exe" if you allow them to use "Run.", BAT/VBS scripts etc.? The answer to most questions regarding "lock down" is either: 1) Software Restriction policies: http://www.windowsecurity.com/articles/Default-Deny-All-Applications-Part1.h tml http://www.windowsecurity.com/articles/Default-Deny-All-Applications-Part2.h tml - or - 2) Windows SteadyState (previously called Shared Computer Toolkit): http://www.windowsecurity.com/articles/Protect-Public-Computers-Windows-Stea dyState-Part1.html Vista will be supported soon (beta version 2.5 is out there) Regards /Jakob From: gptalk-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:gptalk-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Hamilton, Ronnie Sent: 25. januar 2008 12:34 To: gptalk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [gptalk] Vista lock down Hi in the middle of locking down Vista to bare minimum and I am trying to prevent the help and Support from being launched.
