I have been searching for a way to get around at ease on my community college's G3's without doin a major hack, and I have finnaly found one.

You can get around at ease by putting in a Mac OS Software Install CD and restart holding "C". After the machin starts up, you can take out the At Ease extension in the extensions folder on the hard drive. Restart without holding "C", and you will be free to roam.

Any other simple workarounds would be greatly appreaciated.

There's a hundred-and-one workarounds for At Ease...
What version are you working on?
I assume (probably wrongly) that you have no malicious intent...
If you are trying to secure a computer... don't do it with At Ease.

At Ease is no problem -- what I can't stand is FoolProof! They can even disable a shift-boot to turn off extensions (FoolProof is one).

That process can be used to get around At Ease, however -- hold "shift" during startup and it'll never be launched, and you cen erase/move it to deactivate it.

Be Happy.
Be happy.
