Hello, Currently I have users logging on from a thin client to a windows 2003 terminal server, it seems every user finds it necessary to have dozens of IE windows open.  Needless to say this is slowing down the server. How can I limit each user to specified number of explorer windows that are opened?

Hi rsmithgs,
Update to IE7 Then they can use tabs instead of new windows.

True, but these people will forget that they have IE open and keep opening new ones, it drives me nuts!!!! I need a policy to restrict each user to one IE window.
