Internet Explorer will open to set page based on only select users on select systems
We are currently running Windows 2003 with AD.
I have 4 systems running Win 2K Pro. and created 4 accounts that auto login to these systems.
What I need is that when they login that Only IE loads, and they can't close the program or if they do it logs them out.  The user will not have access to a Keyboard once this is setup so must limit it mouse use only.  

Still will need the option to log them out and login as administrator and have full system control of the desktop.  There will be a keyboard but will be locked up till supervisor stops by.

(This will be a system in a warehouse to print labels and we want it so they do it from a webpage that will only allow the label to print once without a supervisor code entered.  Still giving an Admin full access to the system loged in with an Administrator's account.)

    sounds like you are looking for a Thin Client solution. IE is not the solution you need, nor can you make it work this way.

    Use either Terminal Services from MS or CITRIX.

    These products are exactly what you need, but they do cost.

    Good luck,
