    Password Protect Internet Explorer (1.0)

    My daughter is using Windows Vista in her business and would like to keep most of her employees from using the internet. How can she set it up so that only people who have a password can get into Internet Explorer to use the internet? We have a network set up on the computer that connects to the internet.

    Is that a server? Are you running any sort of proxy software?

    Your daughter probably wants to restrict Internet communication for some of the users (user profiles), not just disable Internet explorer, because users can go around and install another web browser.

    If user profiles are stored on workstations (they are not "roaming" user profiles stored on the server), she needs on each workstation change group policy to restrict Internet communication for each user profile.

    To do so, she needs to run Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc) with elevated Administrator rights.
    Then on left pane of Group Policy window navigate to User Configuration, then expand Administrative Templates, then expand System, then select Internet Communication Management.
    Next on the right pane double-click Restrict Internet communication and the Properties window will appear. Select "Enabled", click Apply, then click OK.

    Repeat this procedure for each user profile on each computer, except user profiles she wants Internet communication enable. Just she must be sure that required password policy applies (on Group Policy Editor, navigate to Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Account Policies > Password Policy)
