You can't do this with a GPO - sorry

The reason is that just opening up a HTML page is a download:

The browser requests the page by filename and then receives the text (download) it then parses the text into a page.

It is possible to block FTP and HTTP downloads using a firewall. I have Kerio Winroute Firewall (www.kerio.com) and it has a feature that allows all sorts of control on a per user basis over what is downloaded.

Cheers

You can get a refund by going to community support.

However, you should also post here how you fixed it yourself so that others can benefit from your discovery.

I don't think this chap should get a refund as he didn't post the answer he apparently got by himself.

I am inclined to believe that my comment was correct and he is just trying to save himself spending the points.

My recommendation:

Delete/PAQ, no refund.

Cheers

I was hoping to entice him into posting his solution :)

I would have been happy to recommend a refund if he had shown us all how to solve the problem, plus we would have a good PAQ for the KB.

Cheers

You're too cunning for your own good, and it's nearly home time for me so was trying to be effient ;-)

If we get a response back from dh003756 I'll happily suggest a refund.

Waiting on dh003756 response.
