Is there a way to gray out the View Files and View Objects button in IE 6.0 on Windows 2003 Server?  I don't want to use GPO's, local policies are fine, but I am really looking for is a registry setting in HKEY CURRENT USER.

The location would be:   HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel

However I am not sure of the rest.  You can dissable (gray out) the history button this way:

To lock the “Clear History” button, you’ll have to modify the DWORD value called “History” (without quotes). If the value “History” does not already exist, right click in the right section of the window and select New, DWORD Value. Name it “History”.
