    Browsing internet through explorer shell

    I have a policy set in our AB Tutor program which allows you to ban applications on the fly. The best thing about this is it kicks them out if the app if it is currently running. We have started using this as a quick and easy way for teachers to ban the internet. They just set the policy to ban iexplorer.exe - the key factor here is being able to stop it live, so it can be applied at any point through the lesson.

    Now then, pupils have found that they can open up their docs folder and press the Internet Home hotkey on the microsoft basic keyboard. Now they are able to access internet through explorer.exe rather than iexplorer.exe. The shell is set to 'classic' in Group Policy but I can't find anything to stop explorer shell to disable internet access.

    We can block internet at port level through AB but then they can access what is in the cache by looking at their recent history.

    Any ideas?

    The only way i know of to stop this is to deny them permissions on the mshtml.dll file. This is the way the script previouly posted on edugeek worked.

    As mentioned in another thread surely this is a teaching issue. If the kids are that intent of disobedience are they really going to knuckle down once the cached pages are removed.
