On our domain we are in the process of setting up 5 Vista Business PC's which will be used as part of a small Internet Cafe for our members of staff to use when they are on a break.

I have used group policy to completely lock down the users login (no right click, no start menu, no desktop icons etc) however I cannot find a setting to automatically delete(or disable) the browsing history in Internet Explorer 7.

I searched Google for a registry edit I could make as I could then create a .adm using this but had no luck.

Any help you could offer would be appreciated!

Thanks,
Clint

It sounds as though you need to use the RIES tool. You can set group policy to use this and reset the Internet Explorer settings on a group policy refresh:

Different users cannot view the history of others, so you only have this problem if you use the same login for everyone - do you? I would not recommend this, because people may use the computer for illegal activities (whatever) and you cannot make out the user who did it.
Maybe think about using MS steady state (freeware): http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/winfamily/sharedaccess/default.mspx

I created a script containing "RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 255"  to run each time the user logs on which deletes all browsing history.
