Basically as per this link below it cannot be done because you cannot launch a browser outside of windows login

Your main problems will be
- without gp applying to the user account how will it know how to use the net or if the page is local.
-  what permissions will the user have after this link is clicked. This may leave then with the ability to access system files/folders.

There is a reason microsoft don't allow it and why special apps need to be purchased.

It just opens up a firestorm of trouble if you try to hack your way in..

From what I have read, it operates as SYSTEM (even higher than ADMIN), and yes, that can be very dangerous. Which is why I said to read ALL the comments. Some programs are safer than other to use.
Also I am not sure if a "browser" will work (which ones or how well), as a couple of posters were having issues with EXPLORER (Desktop) closing after about 5 minutes.

yeah logging in as system has "hacked" written all over it lol
with the tools you can specify a service account which has no access barring the site specified.
