No, but it should be simple.  All services (including browser) are launched with registry entries found in HKLM/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Services.

The key for Browser is  ...  wait for it  ....   Browser

You need to change the value for the Start Dword entry to decimal 4 (disabled)

So... manually create a ZEN app that makes that change.  Set it to not force a reboot.   It can run "silent" so the user doesn't even know it happens.

If you are importing all of your workstations, you could associate it to the workstation container in force run, and set it for run once.
