I am currently working on kiosk and was doing good on locking it down until I discovered that if end user clicks on a broken link they get "This page can't be displayed".  The issue is when they get this page there is a "Fix connection problems" button on the page.  A user is able to click it and with some navigation can reach the control panel.
Is there a group policy, Registry setting or IE setting that will disable the "Fix connection problems" button?
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Prevent access to the control panel via group policy:  User Configuration - Administrative Templates - Control Panel - Prohibit access to the Control Panel

Hello and welcome, @phreeves:


You may not have noticed, but this topic is nearly a year old (February 2016). 

It's quite possible that the OP either found a solution or may no longer be following the thread.


Thanks, though, for your helpful suggestion.


Enjoy your stay!
