Can you lock down the proxy settings (i.e. those found in connections > LAN settings) in Internet Explorer on Windows clients (XP/7) to prevent users taking their corporate laptops away and attaching them to public/home wireless networks for web browsing, if so how?

And will locking down the proxy settings in IE protect the device, or are there other ways the user could hook it to public/personal wireless, i.e. non corporate networks.
