One of my client business's is a Library. The library has 6 users that uses one roaming profile that is locked down. I just installed IE7 on the computers. I'm trying to figure out how to make it so users can't add favorites. Also make it so it does not log the history of the last user. I can't seem to find a policy on this, I may have missed it though, does anyone know how I can do this?

Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Internet Explorer\Browser menus    Hide Favorites menu

Prevents users from adding, removing, or editing the list of Favorite links.  The Favorites list is a way to store popular links for future use.  If you enable this policy, the Favorites menu is removed from the interface, and the Favorites button on the browser toolbar appears dimmed. The Add to Favorites command on the shortcut menu is disabled; when users click it, they are informed that the command is unavailable.  If you disable this policy or do not configure it, users can manage their Favorites list.  This policy is intended to ensure that users maintain consistent lists of favorites across your organization.  Note: If you enable this policy, users also cannot click Synchronize on the Tools menu to manage their favorite links that are set up for offline viewing.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
