Is there anyway to use/run an Internet Explorer browser without Admin/elevated rights? We are looking for a way to stop users from running a IE9 browser with Admin/elevated rights. The department does not want any user to be able to run/execute/start anytype of file/program or such from the Internet. Is there a switch or group policy that we can use?

Remove the users from the local admin group. If they have any admin rights they can and will be able to reverse anything you try to prevent them from.

Thank you for your suggestion, but I might not have made my problem clear. We need to keep the admin rights of the user so that they might preform their job.  It's just that the company does not want any user to have an elevated IE session. They are looking at something like this for IE. Right click on IE icon and click on "run as a different user", then the user would input their normal account info to run it as a non-elevated user. They would then download the driver, program and whatever that they need to download. Once it is download, then they would be able to use their admin account to install the driver, program of whatever. There is an concern that if an IE session was run with elevated rights, then the user could accidently trigger some type of an virus/malware that could infect the system from with in the IE session. I hope I explain this correctly.

Your problem was crystal clear, if they have any access to admin rights of any sort....you will not be able to stop them unless you remove that right.


There is always a way to configure your apps to run without having admin rights
