Hey guys, sorry to annoy just wondering how would I Lock a user out of a program E.g. Internet Expplorer but still having it connected to the network, btw this is on WinXP SP 2. I havve been looking around in the GPO and Local Users and Groups but with no luck.

Hello TVcouch,
you can do this by applying GPO that disables usage of certain programs based on their HASH values.
Bye

you can also just set up an Internet explorer start up password, so that anyone who tries to open Internet explorer must know the password and that will do some good… hope i was able to help you ….

You can also simply remove the users rights to run the iexplore.exe file via NTFS permissions.

If you have a firewall system such as ISA you can use this to prevent the user(s) from accessing Internet sites while still allowing them to access internal web sites.

    For a quick and dirty solution, push a GPO that turns on the needed usage of a proxy in IE, but to a blank server. If you this person to still have internal website access, just add the exclusion to the proxy list. Equals to internal website access, but no external (internet) access HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings "ProxyEnable"=1 ; activated

    Thanks for the help. I'll try the NTFS permisssions, Seems like the easyest way but if you could tell me the path to change the Hash for Internet Explorer, you'd be a legend.
