I would recommend that you remove the executable files from each of the client computers. On Win2k they are in c:\winnt\system32. Delete the files sol.exe, freecell.exe, and winmine.exe.

Pinball.exe is in C:\Program Files\Windows NT\Pinball\

There are several ways to do this.

First and foremost is to go to
Start/Settings/Control Panel/Add remove programs/Add new programs and in the accessories location uncheck the games box.

Next will depend if you are in an 2K active directory domain and all computers are running w2k.

If so this is easily done thru group policies.

start/run/type mmc press run.
Console/add snap in/ add group policy.
Save the group policy in the domain, name it disable add programs.

In the User Config/Admin Templates/control panel/Add remove programs.... Enable the hide add new programs page. Save the policy and then apply it to your users.

They will now be unable to install the programs.

NT4 is a little different. You would need to create a profile and apply it to each user. It is a little more difficult and I won't go into it here.
