    I'm a student at an international school which utilizes Laptops in the school enviornment. As such, I find my precious old Macbook pro with a program called Faronics Insight, an application which allows teachers to monitor student while they work in class.

    Now I have a problem with this program, part of this program also blocks certain applications from use, most important of which is Bootcamp.

    I bought a copy of Windows 7 in hope of installing it for home use outside of school. But alas, it is blocked...

    How might I go about disabling the block on Bootcamp? I don't want to just remove this Faronics progam altogether, only unblock Bootcamp.

    It's your own personal laptop but the school forces you to install programs on it?

    You could talk to school IT and have them remove the block..

    Or you could use Parallels or VMWare or VirtualBox..

    It is bs that I had to pay for a restricted machine, I know, and the IT department won't remove the block for me... I asked them :(.

    Parallels, VMWare and Virtualbox are not only inferior to bootcamp and don't satisfy my need, but they have quite kindly been blocked by this program as well.

    Go into the services menu and disable the insight student service, hit apply twice, then hit OK. ALT + CTRL + DEL "student.exe"

    You might have to look around. An older version of the software was easy to disable but the developer has fixed that loophole in a newer version.

    Don't feel so bad.... I went to school before cellphones, computers, electronic anything. We did higher math using a sliderule. We typed reports using a manual typewriter (or wrote them longhand).

    I have indeed been on this site, and you might notice that is all for the Windows verison...

    Btw: this is my first year using laptops in school. I've been educated with paper, pen, longhand calculations and rulers up until this year.
