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.

Thank you for your help. The 'Disable New Window" and "Disable Open in New Windows" is disabled in the GPO that is applied to the OU that the user is located in and I am still having trouble. I have even changed the policy on the local machine on user configuration and it is still getting blocked. Any ideas where the registry keys are to these two policies?

I talked to the person that configured the machine and he just said he used Group Policies. I think some GPOs are not being applied. I'll have to look into it.
