How to completely disable or disconnect internet browser in a user connected within in the netwrok.  We have an employee despite of repetitive request to him not to surf during working hours and still he does. We delete the browser, we delete the setup (internet options) and he regain it. He just go to other computer and copy the setup and he can browse again. We don’t want to remove him because we know he is a good guy but we have only this comment to him. Any idea.

This really depends on your current infrastructure.  For example, if you were running proxy/isa you could restrict this at the server.  And if you were running Active Directory you could restrict much of what this user could do with group policy.  Even if he's on Win9x you could still use policy editor on the machine to lock it down somewhat.

But... if you really want to get the point accross to this employee, install this:

I've never used it but it claims to be a "kid safe" browser that allows you to block the launching of other browsers and restrict the sites it can visit.
