Disable Internet Explorer

Discussion in 'Microsoft Windows 2000 Terminal Server Application' started by JAG Distributing, Oct 23, 2003.

  1. It seems like this would be an easy one, but I have not found an
    answer and have even searched on Google groups. I would like to
    disable use on Internet Explorer for users, but not Admins. When I
    log on as a user I open a document in Word and choose Save as Webpage
    to the desktop. If I open the page saved tot he desktop it uses IE to
    open it then I am able to enter and web address I choose.

    So far I have using group policies applied to everyone except Admins.
    I used the "Run only allowed Windows applications" policy, but this
    did not work. I then specified iexplore.exe in the "Don't run
    specified Windows applications" policy, but it did not work.

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks.

  2. Have you tried using NTFS permissions on the iexplore.exe
    executable to restrict who can access/run it?

    -M

  3. Thanks. I was thinking about that. If a user were to open My
    Computer and type an URL in the address bar would this stop them?

  4. I used permissions, but it didn't work. So what I did is put 0.0.0.0
    for a proxy address and hid the connections tab for internet options
    in IE. This is working so far.
