Dear Windows 2000 Freelists.org,


Hello again! Thanks for the help from a few days back! It made a
difference. I have another challenge listed below:


We would like to setup a bare bone Windows 2000 Professional or Windows
XP Professional configuration for a lab that will be used for a specific
test for students. We plan on creating a very simple image including
only MS Word 2002. One critical criteria is that students must not be be
able to access the Internet via Internet Explorer 6. Unfortunatley, we
cannot just "unplug" the machines because students will need to print
the test to a network printer once they finish. We plan on using Group
Policy to limit access to My Network Places, etc... I guess my questions
are listed below:


1.       Does there exist a method to either remove or diable IE 6 from
Windows XP Prof or Windows 2000 Pro via a registry hack or via Group


I guess I could use Group Policy to hide the IE and My Computer icons
from the desktop, remove Programs from the Start Menu, and just place
Shortcuts on the desktop to to get to the one program needed but I am
wondering if there is another way. All comments and suggestions are most
welcome. Thanks in advance. Take care.


All the best,


Daniel J. Cook
