What do you mean with passwording the systray?

Something like stop its usability until a password is wrote?

You can make a script that await the windows of 'Settings' and Disable the controls of OK and Apply.

And with a Hotkey you summon a input dialog that ask a password to stop this.

How much protection you need? Who can try to change this settings? Expert users or newbies?

You could also lock out all the tray icons with this:

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 4);advanced
ControlDisable("classname=Shell_TrayWnd","Notification Area", "ToolbarWindow321")

Create a hotkey calls an InputBox and perform ControlEnable if password is valid.

Since you're using Symantec Antivirus, I'm assuming that you have administrator rights on the system. There is another package called Symantec System Center that allows system administrators the ablity to create, deploy, and lock down security features so that your users are not able to change the configuration settings.

Hope this helps!

The deployment center will create install packages that you can burn to cd and install on the 98 units.
