Prevent users from browsing C:

Specs: Win2003
Hi We are running Windows 2003 Server where all the students are accessing using Terminal Server.
We are using group policy to lockdown and prevent users from accessing C: (we thought)

If the student open Windows Explorer and write "C:\" They will not get access.


If the student use the build in function in windows - Right click-Create link, and type "C:\", then they can click on the link and they can access the C: drive and browse through several folders.

Does anyone know how to prevent students to create this shortcut as this is the only way I see they can access browsing of the drive?

Kind Regards

:O so this is where school tech support goes to T.T

What do you mean by the build in function? When i right click, there is no create link option.

Well if you are afraid of getting the school computers screwed up, my school district installed a software known as Deepfreeze and it's basically a very sophisticated version of system restore that occurs whenever the computer is shut down.
