    I dont think thats what he wants Nikhil. He can still install activex of applets using firefox. Also in IE it is possible for you to stop the installation of the components by the admin itself. So there wont be any issues. I use firefox a lot myself. I do find that it doesnt work on certain pages tho...interesting...

    I think he wants this ...Ok ask your friend to do this ...
    1)Make sure to run an antispyware application like spybot Search & destroy.
    2) make sure to run both software and hardware firewalls and antivirus applications to protect yourself against Trojan horses
    3 Watch out for cookies.
    4) Make sure your browser settings are stringent enough to protect you. In IE, this means your security settings for the Internet Zone should be at least medium. Deny the browser permission to install any ActiveX control you haven't requested.
    Do this and will help you so much in a long run ..Errr your friend in a long run. :D

    hmm buddy u can install Nortorn Internet security or there are many parental contol programs dat ban people from visiting porn sites.
    BTW nikhil is right... get firefox it simply rocks :D

    www.getfirefox.com

    But there is a problem...... as ur friend own a cybercafe... so we indians are so obvious to IE dat for almost 75% of people internet is all about Internet Explorer and Instant memengers!!
    we indians never try something new...... buddy i recommed u install firefox and keep it as a seconday browser as of now. and u can switch it completely to Firefox when u feel customers are confortable with them :D

    what nikhil meant was that most of such search tools and spywares are written for IE so it doesn't matter Firefox so www.getfirefox.com

    ..:: peace ::..

    setup proxy server or firewall on server and then block whcihever file types you want

    for windows Kerio Winroute Firewall is good and for linux Squid is very good...

    Both have options to block certain files or sites with specific words in the URL...

    or 2nd option would be enabeling active directory and then controling everything using group policies but this will need some expert to do it so first option (for windows) will be better...
