sure...

go to Windows Explorer and find the folder c:\Program Files\Internet Explorer

Right click on IEXPLORE.exe

View the 'properties'

In the security tab, remove every user (or group) EXCEPT Administrator....OR...go through each user (or group) in the list and check the box 'deny' for each permission.  I would definitely NOT recommend denying access to the Administrator.

Notes:

1) You must be logged in as the administrator to do what I have described.
2) The administrator will still be able to execute IEXPLORE.exe (if you don't deny access to the adminstrator)

No other user will now be able to use internet explorer.  If they try to use it, they will be denied access.

I hope this helps and is what you were looking for.  Good luck!

Unlikely, IE is intergrated into the system so it is considered as system components. Win2000 will not be happy about not having IE.

These guys claim they can do it, at least as far as Windows 2000 sp1.

Truly I don't think it is worth the risk to even attempt removing something Win2000 considers system components. It can and probably will cause you nothing but problems.

Change the security so only the Administrator can execute Internet Explorer.  (If that's what you're trying to accomplish).  Then no one will be able to use IE.

GorGo1,
  Seem like you have a quite alternative idea here. Can you guide me on this?

  Thanks.

You can also disable by individual user by creating and modifying a group policy object in Active Directory users and computers

The comment that GorGor wrote is exactly what I do. It works well if you want to make sure that they do not have access to open Internet Explorer.
