Hello All,

I have a co-worker that locked down a workstation to function has a Kiosk. He disabled menus and such from Internet Explorer using GPOs. What he also did was prevent Internet Explorer from launching new windows, tabs, or closing the browser. When A person tries to perform any of these actions they receive a "operation not permited. Contact your Administrator' error box. I need to find out how he could have done this and allow new windows to launch so links on a site will work. Does anyone know how he may have done this. I have not seen anything in the Administrative templates for IE that would do this so I am at a lose. Thank you.
