Hi guys,

How can I disable the highlight and drag option? What I am asking is how can I prevent someone from highlighting text
on a page and then dragging that text into another program?

Sincerely,
Brandon

Ensure that only M$IE is installed, find a way of disabling Tools, and cross your fingers.
