Start Menu Search area

Hi,
My PC, under Seven Pro, are working in a betwork in a college. I 'd like to stop the student of using the search area which is in the start menu. Why? Because by this way they can open a cmd window and write on C:.
Sp, I am searching what HKLM or HK policy I can use to prevent this serach area of beeing displayed in the start menu.
Any ideas?
Thanks a lot
Regards
Andre

Hi Andre,

Your best bet is to contact the college network administrator to help you use policies to lock down the cmd function.
