I already asked a similar question I got another one (Windows XP) How can I disable with absolute control internet downloads. See when I am not home I do not want people to download stuff from the internet because they have no idea what they are doing and download malware. I do not want to put a password rather restrict any type downloads. 1)Internet Content/Cookies can be downloaded. 2)Manual Downloads are restricted. 3)ActiveX Downloads are restricted. Somebody mentioned using Group Policy, can I do it through this? Also if I can place a password block. Meaning whenever a different user wants to make an internet download a window would appear saying "Manual Downloaded are Restricted please type password" something like that?
