Disable Certain Internet for Non-Admin (XP)

#1
is there any possible way i can disable internet for Users on XP? I dont want them to be able to use Internet Explorer, but Do want them to be able to play games... is this a port blocking Issue? How do I ensure that they dont open up these ports on their own?

thanks!

Well, port 80 is for HTTP requests... you could always block that one. Would these people know how to block/unblock ports themselves? I'm not sure that their permissions would allow them to do so even if they knew how, that is if they are under a limited profile.

Other options: Disable the network adapter under that profile. Remove the IE icon from the desktop, start menu, and quick launch bar, and restrict access to the IE folder on the hard drive.

you can use zone alarm (Free) to block Internet Explorer from accessing the web and use zone alarms password protection to keep it from being re-enabled. Then games can be configured for net access Zone alarm download

Now... every time you try to access a site it will ask for a password. If you do not enter the correct password it does not display it.
