hey guys,

anyone got an idea how to limit a user or user group to only be allowed to acces a certain few websites, and everything else i denied ?
i know most parental control settins work the other way around where u can access all websites exect a few that are denied.

But i am building a computer for a customer and this computer is going to be in a auto mechanic shop, and the owner dont wnt the guys to goof off on the computers surfing the web, so h wants donloads and mostly everything on the web blocked ..

anyone got an idea on how to do that
with windows or 3rd party ? (Windows xp pro sp2)

You might want to give the Shared Computer Toolkit from Microsoft a look. I'm not 100% sure but I believe it has the functionality you're looking for, among many other tools for locking down a PC.

Another option I found is iNet Protector. It's not free, and I've never used it, but the description seems to match what you're looking for to a tee.
