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.
