Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

On the computers you want to disable cmd line on, go to RUN and type gpedit.msc then OK. Under User Configuration select System and scroll down to “Prevent access to the command prompt”. Set the settings how you want and move to the next comp.

    Be aware of potential problems with such a setting. Read the text description carefully. Here's an extract of the text:
    • Note: Do not prevent the computer from running batch files if the computer uses logon, logoff, startup, or shutdown batch file scripts, or for users that use Terminal Services.
    Blocking access to CMD.EXE can bring a number of difficulties. Tom
