Here's my issue...

I need to restrict Internet access on several computers in my network but I still need them to be able to see other network services. I used to do this with CyberSitter and it worked great for what I needed, but now I need to install a new program on many of these clients and the new program will not work on a computer that has a program like CyberSitter installed. (Probably a port issue, but even forwarding does not fix it)

The users are Power Users so I have removed all the browsers and they can't reinstall them without admin rights...Except for IE!!! There's so many different ways to get Windows to open IE that I need a different solution for Explorer. I'm using both 2000 and XP machines.

Does anyone know of a way to kill internet access (for IE), without killing network access, using either the hosts file or some other security protocol within Windows?

Any help would be great.

Thanks

I think there may be something in this Windows XP Newsgroup thread that can help you.
