    ok guys... i need it for a single system. what i meant is ... i need to block downloading any of the files (any file type) that people do from either as email attachment downloading or direct link to an exe or zip like that. here we use ie and firefox. and i guess pokiris link works only with ie..? also iam trying with http://www.softpedia.com/get/Securit...g-system.shtml.

    u can use a combination of the above suggestion for ie and for whole..

    Instead of looking at the browser.. look around the Download manager.. and uncheck the file extentions that it'll automatically download.. and password protect the settings.. Simple eh??? Hope it solves uer issue...
