I need a way to display the corporate internet policy to all domain users when they start internet explorer.  I looked through the internet explorer administrative template, but didn't see a way to add it directly there (unless I missed it)  Does anyone have this working, or able to point me in the right direction?

I can't think of a way to do this either.

The best I can come up with is to create a web page with the information that you want, then use group policy to hard code this as the home page in to Internet Explorer - so that the users cannot change it. I have seen that done loads of times.

Simon.

After doing further research, I've decided to just use the dedicated homepage that contains the acceptable internet use policy.  Thanks for your help.
