Best source for GPO shortcuts

There has to be a "GREAT" source on the net for finding GPO built-in shortcuts.  Such as "Remove all instances of I.E. from a user".  I'm new to GPO, however, I understand how to use it, I just can't always find the built-in shortcut I'm looking for.

Thanks

Can you please explain this a bit more?  Are you looking for something in particular in the group policy?

To start with I'd like to complete stop all access to I.E. for a particular OU.  They are using XP Pro workstations.

Hi again

I don't think that there's anything around that's quite what you're looking for but here's some useful links -

You can run gpmc on a windows xp sp1 client with .net framework installed or 2003 server - it will work on a 2000 domain,

As for your IE lockdown - you can maybe setup a fake proxy in IE maintenance - Connections in user policy on a gpo containing the users. Don't have direct access right now but will post back tomorrow if you need further info,
