Anyone pls provide me how to set policy in the win server 2008 r2 AD to restrict user from surfing the internet. I do not want to use proxy, I just want not everyone that click on IE then it will auto go to internet. Only certain people can surf net.

You can setup permission on  Internet Explorer.exe (or perhaps explorer.exe also). Setting fake proxy for users who you don't want them to access internet is an another solution. But as you said you don't like it.

ya, if an user is computer literate, they will know where to remove the setting! I think 2008 should be able to block the IE access, right?

If you want to go the fake proxy route you can block those users from seeing the connection tab in group policy as well.

Not a good idea to block the IE rather use restrictions on the proxy server or at the firewall .
Putting strict permission on the IE will have negative effect on the Operating System.
