I'm kinda new to Windows administration, so please forgive me if I sound like I don't know what I'm talking about. We have a domain environment that has a mixture of Windows server 2003 and server 2008. I have been administering a Windows server 2003 lab server that controls our labs that have Windows 7 clients.
The problem that I have been having is that students have been installing browser toolbars (conduit seems to be the main culprit) that allow them them to install apps such as bittorrent clients within the toolbar. This also changes the search engine to conduit search. They have been using this to bypass the security policies that were put in place by the last administrator.
They also seem to be able to change the wallpaper, this was not a problem when all the clients were Windows XP.
Anyone know how to solve this problem through group policy or some other method?
