As an educator my students have mastered playing network games such as HALO WAR Craft... How can I kill the games.

I think that game has been installed additionally --- it doesn`t come with Windows XP...maybe you can try with Add or Remove Programs ?

If somehow the games came with Windows XP, which I don`t believe, you can check THIS out...

Hmm.....You should set the user accounts to "Limited" and not to "Administrator"

Go to Control Panel >> User Accounts >> Select the account >> Click "Change account type" >> Click "Limited account"....then follow the on-screen instructions to finish...

This will prevent them from installing the games and everything else.....If you want to install something, right click the installation file >> Click "Run As" >> Select "Administrator" >> type Administrator Password >> Click OK...

Do these systems have internet access? My son plays HALO and runs it from a USB stick. It isn't even installed on the PC.

When you start the game , all you're doing is contacting a remote server. The game actually runs on that remote server.

If you can block the URL of the gameserver via whatever internet gateway is running at the school then you should be able to eliminate the problem.
