1 games on laptops on Fri Sep 25, 2009 12:04 pm

students got ther laptops today and seem very excited. Imagine my surprise when one student already had so e games on his desktop from his memory stick and was playing them at lunchtime. I was under the impression that no programs could be added. I would like someone to explain to me why i can't run stu's double jeopardy, an educational tool from my laptop due to group policies yet students can play games on theirs!! PLEASE EXPLAIN!!!!!

It takes a little while for group policies to be picked up. By the second login I would expect that the games will no longer work - that's what happened to me with GoogleEarth

if the program runs without needing to install anything not sure you can stop it

basically I have given up even thinking about what the kids put on their laptops
all comes under the "outside my sphere of control" clause I am told to not worry about
