Windows XP is installed in the lab and we've 2 user accounts, admin and student...we're only allowed to use student account.
Now we're currently taught C programming and HTML, which means we use a lot of Turbo C++ Compiler/MS Visual C++, Internet Explorer and MS Word (for printing purposes).
These all applications work perfectly. But when i try to run any other application, say any of my compiled C Programs directly by double-clicking the exe file, or run msconfig (if I intend to change the startup items) or any other application, the computer logs off, shuts down and starts again. This is the case with all the lab computers. Is this some kind of virus or is this some user limits/software used by the college to stop us from opening any application?!?
Also, how to bypass it because I really wish to stop some unncessary startup items because our computers are ancient and slow...
