Is there a way to disable web browsing on a set of computers?

Currently I have it disabled via group policy (by specifying a 'dummy proxy' and then disabling the ability to change this), but it's not an ideal solution because users are able to just log on as someone else. who does not have this restriction. (And in addition, they need to be able to log on to log on in different locations and be ABLE to browse.)

In other words, is there a way to disable web browsing based on the 'Computer Configuration' rather than 'User Configuration' in group policy?

This is in a Windows 2003 AD.

Thanks for your help
