Hope someone has the way to do this, but I have a customer at work whose computer I'm fixing and she asked me if there was a way so that no IM programs could be run off the computer. I know there are ways to do this since I've come across viruses that automatically close any programs you try to run (specifically HJT, Norton and any spyware program). I just dont know to do this and was wondering if anyone knew how to do this. I know you would have to included all the differnet IM programs out there because if you block just AOL IM (which is the program her kids are currently using) they will just go and install another IM program like ICQ or Trillium. So it would need to close down all of these.
If anyone has any ideas please let me know.
