    Our company had the need to deploy a workstation with a web browser to access a couple of web pages. I felt the need to lock the devices down a little tighter than what they already were and chose a few policies for Internet Explorer to help keep the honest people honest. I figured I would share these policies as I’m sure I’m not the only one looking to do this. Like I said, I wanted to keep the honest people honest, and my primary goals were to make sure they didn’t have an address bar and were unable to enable settings I disabled.
