Disabling command prompt & run in Win98

By tvsankar ·
How can I disable users using the run in start menu and generally restrict access to MS DOS prompt in Win98 SE. I have heard that there is a switch in Windows Registry for this. Please specify details if known.
I have not implemented any policy in the system and do not want to use policy editor.

Try these- (Note: You should reboot after making these changes)

To remove the Run Command from the Start Menu on Windows 9x and NT

Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\
Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
Value Name: NoRun
Data Type: REG_DWORD
Data: (0 = disabled, 1 = enabled)

To disable the MS-DOS Command Prompt on Windows 9x and NT

1. Using Regedit find the key below, creating it if it doesn't already exist.
2. Create a new DWORD value, and name it 'Disabled'.
3.To disable the command prompt modify the value of 'Disabled' to '1', and to re-enable it again later change the value to '0'.

Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\
Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\WinOldApp]
Value Name: Disabled
Data Type: REG_DWORD
Data: (0 = disable, 1 = enable)

Policy Editor or TweakUI

Both give you great control over all aspects of the Win98 OS. I am more familiar with Policy Editor (poledit) which allows you to disable things for specific users and can force network authentication to get onto the local machine.
