Go into the registry and lock the panel that contains the settings. Then
they can't get in to change anything unless they know how to re-enable them
in the Windows registry.

For more on this, go to It's a great site that has tons of
information about the Windows registry settings for all flavors of Windows.

Does anybody know of a way to force proxy settings on windows 98
machines so that the users cannot change them? I have a small group of
users who consistantly mess with their settings, then complain when they
can't reach the internet. Management doesn't want to take a stance on
the issue, and I am sick of the users complaining, that they can't
reach the Internet at 3am because the outside proxy that they are using
has shut down. Any help would be appreciated.
