I have a group of computers that print documents from the web and I would like to set a group policy to remove the URL and date from the footer. So far I have been unable to find a setting that covers this.

Is this possible? If so, where is it located?

How do I set this up and deploy it...

It is for IE 7 and is only for a particular group of users
