asked on

Restrict Internet Access for certain users

I see that this question has been beat to death on EE, so I apologize for adding another question.  Unfortunately none of the solutions proposed will work.

Long story short:
I have 10 users sharing a computer.  I need 1 user to have full blown IE browsing rights.  The other 9, I don't want them accessing the internet.
This is on a Windows XP Pro SP3 computer.

* I've tried IE Content Advisor.  Gets very hard for the 1 user to put in a password constantly
* I do not wish to purchase an additional piece of hardware or software
* The 9 other users DO have admin access to the machine

I was hoping that the Local Security Policy or gpedit.msc had something straightforward saying "Allow the following users onto Internet Explorer".
I've also been looking into putting on fake proxy servers for the 9 users, but I can't do that without logging in as each user.
Any ideas??

Wow, thank you everyone for your great suggestions.  I think every answer will work for this!
I actually went with Fingo's solution because it was insanely easy to implement.  One major thing about his solution is that I can remotely control it.  If someone needs temporary access to Internet Explorer, I can remotely connect to the C: drive and grant access to IE, then remove it later.
The fact is, as Fingo assumed, my users here wouldn't have any idea how to go inside the security of IE and grant themselves access.

But again, thank you for the amazing feedback, greatly appreciated!!!
