NT4.0 here and I use policy files to limit and lock down everything. Works like 
a charm. If you cannot find a *.adm file that has this option you can find the 
appropriate registry key and write your own. Lots of info about this on the web.

Subject: [windows2000] Blocking Internet Browsing from Explorer.exe

Hi, have scanned the archives but struggled find anything.  I need to stop 
users being able to put URL's into the Windows Explorer address bar and surfing 
the net.  We've restricted Internet Explorer to certain times of the day but 
users are begining to realise that they can still surf the net from 
Explorer.exe and it's becoming a real pain.
Anyone got any good pointers or suggestions would be great.
