Hi discoveranother

That way is difficult to implement, because you will need to create a GPO for IE and restrict the websites that you want. As you can imagine there are a lot of Websites.

You need a network edge product to control this. like TMG or hardware appliances, some anti-virus can do that for you also, like kaspersky.

BEtter way is to use some proxy (Squid as a free solution for example) or some kind of firewall allowing content blocking

Might want to have a look at the OpenDNS Cloud solution.  It does a good job in my testing.  It's not free, but may offer a more comprehensive solution than something "home-grown".

Open Active Directory Users and Computers.

Search the user then right click on the user and choose properties, select the Tab Sessions

On the Tab Sessions they have similar configurations like on TS.
