i have desktop running win xp pro in my office. i have an admin account on this machine. there are several limited user accounts as well, for my staff. what i want to do is to disable access to internet explorer from the limited accounts, but retain this privilege myself for the admin account, so that my staff does not waste time browsing the net. is there some way to do this?

ok, i got the answer. right click on the ie executable in the program files. click sharing and security and deny permissions to users. voila!! only, the file system needs to be ntfs and simple file sharing should be disabled. [all in win xp]
thanks
