I have set up a fairly simple script for one of my schools whereby the teacher can control various computer's internet access. I'm sure there is freeware out there for it and/or a better script, but, the only flaw in my script is kids can still access new IE7 through using the address bar in windows explorer which opens IE7.
So there are three questions I wish to ask:
1) Is there any way to disable IE7 opening through windows explorer?
2) Is there a group policy setting to completely disable the address bar in windows explorer.
and finally 3) Has anyone else a good script that works with regards to disabling other's internet access at a different computer?
I tried various methods of doing this and I found an effective way of doing this without too much hassle is remotely pskill the IE process, then remotely change the permissions on the IE folder in program files thus disabling any icon or shortcut, the downside is it doesnt stop it though URLs in Windows Explorer.
I feel I am going an arse about tit way of doing this, but I tried writing various scripts and batches and this seemed the most reliable and quick to do.
Thanks guys, sorry for the ramblings.
