Network Drive

What I was wondering is if there is a way to access a networked drive while logged off. We do have accounts, but we want to be able to run a program that will get rid of a game on a school networked drive but as said above, without being logged in. If this is possible that will be awesome, if not oh well.

Thanks for the help.

What I mean is a lot of the kids keep putting halo on the computer, and we want to be able to access the networked drive while not logged into the computers so we don't have to keep running a program or some kind of service all the time to get rid of the program. We're getting fed up with having to delete the game constantly.

If the computer has accounts, how can you not login to do stuff?

We have accounts that we are able to log into, its just as stated above, we don't want to have to keep on deleting it ourselves. It gets kind of annoying when kids constantly put things on the computers and get us in trouble. : /

It sounds like you need to fix the permissions to disallow the game to be installed at all

get a domain server and set permissions

deepfreeze I think is the other it will restore the disk on boot up to a set state then just hit the reset button to revert to what you like

Well we're unfortunately students trying to do this, and because of these kids the IT guys think since we are in the computer room a lot and know what the heck we do usually, they think it's us just using someone else's account(considering it is pretty easy to get someone else's account). They don't care if, if you know about the properties -> advanced -> security -> and owner thing, it shows as someone else, "we don't need proof to say that it is you" is what we were told. I don't really want to get permissions to do this, don't want to do that cause I don't want to get in trouble for that, but I do know they have a program called Fortress that blocks things and etc. Though what the school doesn't realize is that the kids are taking the files from say a flash drive or something like that and copying/installing it onto the networked drive. It's not fun...

To the filename thing, we were honestly thinking of doing that, just making a program in our java class that just goes through and deletes it, but as said before we don't want to have to run it manually. We want to have it as say a service and just delete the games.

I am really confused by this question.

What kind of network are you running? Domain / Workgroup?

What OS are the client systems running?

This could be easily prevented with a GPO

User account permissions

Share the local drive

Then you could always look at applications

So far I am pretty sure it's running a Domain, and the OS is Windows XP. As an example of what I mean, today in one period we had found 4 copies of halo on the networked drive, and it just keeps on returning and returning. In general, all we want to do is run something without being logged on, like a USB autoplay, so that it runs this program that deletes EVERYTHING Halo related(the .dlls, .exe's, etc).

Set up a scheduled task that runs a script that deletes any exes on the network share (which can run as an admin without login)? Set up a group policy that disables access to the Change Ownership function, enforces users write ability to be contained to a personal directory on the network share or the ability to run programs from the network share? There is no real reason to allow students to all have write access to the same place without some kinda specific enforcement of permissions.
