Hi,

You can pretty much block everything "in" the tools menu. What are
you specifically worried about? All the settings are in
User Config-Admin Templates-Windows Components-Internet Explorer.

Cheers,

Lara

Hi,

The way to do that is set security on Outlook Express. I have a xcacls
script that runs on startup and sets the security on Outlook Express
folder to System and Administrator = Full Control. No one else has
access to it.

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;825751

Put in batch file and set as startup script.

cscript.exe \\server\Netlogon\xcacls.vbs "C:\Program
Files\Outlook Express" /T /P BUILTIN\Administrators:F /P
BUILTIN\System:F /L /R BUILTIN\Users c:\xcacls.log

Cheers,

Lara
