Windows 7: Windows Internet Explorer 9/10 question on Win7 system

Windows Internet Explorer 9/10 question on Win7 system

Hello everyone,

Hi this is my first post here even though I have been a member for some time. I would like to thank everyone for all the helpful information, as it has helped me greatly.

First off I am a IT computer engineer for a major hospital I do the programming, setup, deployment and maintenance of our hospital computer systems as well as Bio-Med. So you guys and gals can speak the lingo.

Now to my question. I will explain in detail.
We have computers that are know as generic and have generic logins in certain departments, (where anyone from the department can go to the computer and then use it for research on the internet). Well we seam to be running in to a problem with the night staff where they surf the net for pleasure/playtime and these computers then get infected with virus, malware...etc. No one knows who it is and everyone is pointing fingers.

Is there anyway to have Internet Explorer 9/10 on Win7 have a login, so that a user tries to launch Internet Explorer but Internet Explorer will not launch unless the "user" has a login for the application and that application only. Thus giving us a log of What time Internet Explorer was used and by what user and this is what they did/or went.

Generic account (ph12345) is open to everyone in the department, all they have to do is hit enter and they are on the desktop
User (DC12345) login to Internet Explorer @ 1:35am
did this...

Now these computers have to stay generic accounts for the staff. I am asking is it possible to have just the application "Internet Explorer" have a login to launch the app???.they user will click on the application "Internet Explorer" a popup window or a login screen comes up asking for login information. Then if the user has rights to Internet Explorer it would launch and they then can do what they need to do. But at the same time create a log of the launching and what was / where they went.

Thank you for your time and "Have a great holiday season everyone"

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
I personally don't see how one would do that tricky bit I doubt it's possible for a single program,
But I would imagine you have to work in the network access end or internet access in via the routers firewall of some kind ?

You might consider asking here as well ?
