Hi,

I have users that log in to a terminal server to access accounting software. Internet Explorer shows up on everyone's desktop, but I would like to disable the ability to open IE from the Terminal Server for all users but the administrator. What is the best way to do this?

Thanks in advance

You can remove the shortcut from the All Users and Default User profiles (under Documents and Settings) and also use NTFS permissions to deny access to the IEXPLORE.EXE file.
And going one step further, setup a fake proxy server for such users so even if they manage to launch IE, it would not work as the proxy server would not exist. :-)

This is wrong. There is no IE shorcut in All Users or Default User
