You'll have to find somebody who knows netstation download scripts [I think that's the term]. Years ago, I worked for a computer company as a tech support phone person -- and my netstation downloaded desktop came with scripts in place that put restrictions in place -- set by the Admin/IT powers that be. How they did that, I do not know.
