    I'm running two machines, one XP SP1 and the other 2K SP4 in a public institution. (I'm kinda in charge of them). The institution would like to deny access to the built in games that come with Windows. (Solitaire, free cell, mine sweeper, etc') I deleted them from the Start menu, but of course they still exist in the System32 folder.
    I tried to delete them from there, but Windows of course won't let me. Nor will it let me change the file names or extensions, nor deny access to those files.
    How can I stop people from going in there and running these programs?
    Thanks.
