one way is to set IE to use a proxy that doesn't exist. open IE, click tools, internet options, click connections tab, click lan settings, set proxy server to, click ok, click ok.

now you'll need to block access to that setting

shange this registry setting
ernet Explorer\Control Panel]

The above hack did not work for me-when I opened the registry editor,

AS you see there is no internet explorer under the policies tree and yes this is the tree for [hkey_current

log in as the user you want to disable it as

Go to:

* TCP/IP Properties
* Advanced
* Options
* TCP/IP filtering Properties
* Select Enable TCP/IP filtering (All adapters)
* Select Permit Only for all three selections (TCP, UDP, IP)
* Add only the allowed ports that are needed (leaving out port 80 for Web browser traffic)
* Click OK multiple times to close out the windows
