Basically what I want to do is deny internet access for users on this XP Home PC.
I need them to be able use other functions of the PC like printing and Word processing, etc. Since this is XP Home I know certain features like Local and Group policy editors are not available. Ideally I would like to have an entirely separate user account on this machine, and just deny internet access while the "Admin" account does have internet access. However because this is XP Home I do not think that is possible.
The other option I came across was the Internet Options security settings for Internet Zone. You have an option in there to require an username and password for authentication, but that doesnt seem to be working even though I have the option checked. When I open IE it does not prompt for a username or password.
Im not sure if there are any other ways to accomplish this so any help is appreciated.
