Hi Oli,

Use the group policy to disable browsing on all the client machines.

IE includes seven configuration tabs that you can access either from the
Tools, Internet Options menu or from the Internet Options Control Panel
applet; The tabs are

General--Basic options for configuring the home page, temporary Internet
file settings, and history
Security--Settings for configuring Internet security options (e.g., ActiveX
Privacy--Privacy settings for Internet connections
Content--Settings for Internet connection ratings and personal profile
Connections--Settings for configuring dial-up and firewall options
Programs--Executables used for various Internet programs
Advanced--Advanced options

You can use Group Policy to disable any of these tabs. First, start Group
Policy Editor (GPE) for a specific policy (e.g., from the Microsoft
Management Console--MMC--Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in,
right-click a container, select Properties from the context menu, select
the Group Policy tab, then select Edit). Navigate to User Configuration,
Administrative Templates, Windows Components, Internet Explorer, Internet
Control Panel. There, you'll see an option for disabling each of the seven
