Users are tampering with browser/internet settings. I have disabled internet options on the menu bar for PCs with Windows 7 but can't achieve the same with Windows XP.

The command I'm using is


then on Local Group Policy Editor under

User Config -> Administrative templates -> Windows Components

I select Internet Explorer, but on XP its not even there.

It could be that it's not enabled.

You can (re)enable it with the following:

  1. Right click on Administrative Templates
  2. Click Add/Remove Templates
  3. Add the inetres template (inetres.adm). You should find the template in %systemroot%\system32\GroupPolicy\Adm.

B.T.W.: Gpedit is not available in Windows XP Home Edition. It's only available in Windows XP Professional.

For advanced use only: to enable it on Windows XP Home you can follow this guide
Or for the less advanced: you can try Doug's Security Console
