I have a number of laptops that we would like to use for safety training. This is a browser based training. I would like to create a login that only has the ability to open internet explorer and internet explorer is only able to view this one URL. Is this possible and can someone give me instructions on how to do it.

Depends on how much you need to lock down the computer.  I've used Internet Explorer's kiosk mode with success; it hides the address bar so users can't go anywhere you don't want them to.

To start Internet Explorer in Kiosk mode and start Internet Explorer with the Example.htm Web page that is located in the My Documents folder on your computer, click Start, point to Run, and then type iexplore -k "c:\my documents\example.htm" in the Open box.

You can create a shortcut with that command on the desktop and/or put it in startup so it launches on login.
