I saw that you can use a registry hack to disable this but it appears to only work for accounts that are ADministrators, and not Standard users.

The hack I'm referring to is creating the 32-bit DWORD in the Policies node of the HKEY_CURRENT_USER portion of the registry tree. Again, this works, but only for Admin-type accounts.

Anyone know how to get this to work on a Standard account (or for all accounts on a PC)?

You can try using GPO to do this, but unfortunately I'm not aware of a way just for Windows+L.

If the computers have anything besides Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise or Ultimate, you will need to do a hack to get local group policy working, see Here.

To disable the hotkeys, take a look at this.

For the record, Microsoft has a FixIt utility that can do this (disable and enable the Windows+L key combination). Just search their website (don't remember what the KB article number was). It will actually disable all Windows+ shortcut keys since it basically disables the Windows key itself.
