Hi
Yes you can: See the following:

"""To disable the Close button in IE, follow these steps:
1. Quit all instances of Internet Explorer
2. Open regedit.exe (Registry Editor), browse to the following branch:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet
Explorer\Restrictions]

Note: If this registry key does not exist in your system registry, then go
to this key:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft]
Right-click on the key "Microsoft", choose New and click "Key", type
"Internet Explorer" (without quotations)
and then create a sub-key named "Restrictions" (without quotations) under
the key "Internet Explorer"

3. In the Restrictions sub-key, create a new DWORD value named
"NoBrowserClose" and
(without quotations) with a data value of "1"

4. Close Registry Editor and restart IE.

You can also use the attached registry file lock_closeBtn.reg to lock the
Close button.
You can use these registry files to deploy the restriction to the other
computers.

However a user will still be able to close the Internet Explorer by pressing
Ctrl+Alt+Del to bring up the Task Manager to kill IE. If you are running
Win2K or WinXP pro you can use the Local Security Policy snap-in to disable
the Task Manager."""
