Question How can I filter or block downloads

I am running Windows XP SP2 with IE6 and was wondering if it was possible to block or filter downloads on one of the user profiles on the computer. Preferably, I would like it to be in a way that was not reversible by the owner of the user profile.

maybe if you did this and set it to 0 from 10

or you can use gpedit.msc


1. Start Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe).
2. Locate the following key in the registry:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Internet Settings
3. On the Edit menu, point to New click DWORD Value, and then add the following registry values:
Value name: MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server
Value data: 10
Base: Decimal

Value Name: MaxConnectionsPerServer
Value data: 10
Base: Decimal

4. Quit Registry Editor.

What would be the end result of doing that?

I havent done it myselg but I would think it will set the downloads to 0, meaning nothing will download. Your you can use group policy.
