Where do you go in windows xp pro to disable internet explorer for a particular user?
I had someone show me how to change the shortcut so that when you click on it all you get is the internet option screen. Internet Explorer would not start.
It is still on the computer, and you can start it from the command line, but not from the start menu. Any ideas on this?
The icon in the start menu changed from Internet with Internet Explorer in grey under in to just the word Internet.

i haven't found a way to do it...but with group policy you can set a fake proxy server in that user's permissions and dissallow changing of the connections tab....but be carefull because on a local machine this will probably affect all users...

you can delete it...but...it deletes it for everyone....and with a local policy...it's reletively impossible to make any changes that don't effect all users...
