We have over 1000 pc's at my work. Every Thursday we ask people to
leave their pc's on overnight to upgrade their antivirus and any MS
fixes that come out. I suggest you do this to the Students laptops as
well. Pick a day they are in class and the machines are likely to be
on and then, since they will be on the network anyway, update them.
We also have a seperate Admin password so each user cannot install any
software without an IT person physically coming by. We can do remote
access, but do it only very rarely.
Just come up with a good image and then make all machines exactly the
same. That way Tech Support is easier and each Student can actually
get help from one another if needed.
