Restrict Internet Explorer to only one window, one tab

I am a computer lab administrator at a university.  In our lab, students sometimes take exams on the computers using Internet Explorer 7.  We want to prevent students from opening up multiple Internet Explorer windows or tabs (via CTRL+N, CTRL+T, File->New Window, Right Click->Open in New Window, etc, etc).

Is it possible to force Internet Explorer to run in only one window, with only one tab?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

IE has a kiosk mode, but I think they may still be able to use some of those shortcuts.

If the exams aren't IE dependent, Opera has a pretty good kiosk mode and lots of command-line options to lock it down.

bkbaker6999--You can restrict IE to only one site, which could be an internal home page or any one external website.
