cmd refers to cmd.exe while command refers to

Windows NT/Windows 2000 supply cmd.exe and

CMD.EXE is the Windows NT command line interface, its NOT a DOS window.

COMMAND.COM is a 16-bit DOS application which is used for older DOS compatibility and actually runs inside the NTVDM (NT Virtual DOS Machine) due to its 16-bit nature.

They have almost identical features and this is because any command entered in COMMAND.COM it is packaged up and sent to CMD.EXE for execution. The version of COMMAND.COM shipped with NT IS a special NT version designed to pass all execution to CMD.EXE.

So I guess it's enough just to block access to cmd.exe

you can easily reverse the changes lol.. but you can hack your school yourself
The wise make mistakes, the fools repeat them
When you have eliminated the impossible, that which remains, however improbable, must be the truth
