How to remove games from user access

By techless ·
I am being asked to not allow users in one department to have access to games (XP workstations in an AD network environment). What is the easiest way to do that?

Login with full rights and remove their games. You should be able to remvoe the defaults form ADD/REMOVE SOFTWARE>COMPONETS.
Then make their login accounts set for "limited access". They should not be able to reload them again, especially without the CD.

Pet peeve of mine. Why can't their Supervisor supervise them. Why does IT have to be the bad guy?
Sorry,
Peter

Since you are asking about ACCESS to games(which means they are installed on a server )you have to "lock" the games directory for these users . Put the games under one directory preferably , and through its properties remove the users from the list of people allowed to access from the list . If you want to be "more" polite then go individually to each game's starting exe file and ( e.g. doom.exe , chess.exe ) like above disable banned users from access to these exe files.

Group Policy since this is an Active Directory environment. you can remove games and grey out access to entertainment from the programs/accessories/entertain of the start menu.
