I am a teacher who would like to hide the control panel so that students are not able to remove items and destroy important info. How would I do it?

Look for a program called TweakUI.

go to this article for more information about it.

This will enable you to "remove" control Panel icons from use.

Take a look.

You might also try this:

Copy the bold to Notepad:

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
"NoControlPanel"=hex:01,00,00,00


Save as Control.reg, doubleclick, and anwer 'yes' to have it merged into the registry.

This will disable Control Panel.
At least until someone discovers how to undo this... :D

Grtz.
