Web Computer Lockdown

I've finally gotten around to using Group Policy to replacing our 3rd
party security in Windows 2000. I'm currently configuring a computer for
Internet access relying strictly on a local GP to control and secure the
Windows Interface. We need access to a couple of programs so I haven't
gone the route of running the browser as the shell.

There's a couple small items that I can't seem to find lockdowns to
address in Win2K. We allow access to our printers control panel so when
you open that up, you can access the View and Help menus. These provide
routes to various kinds of potential mischief. I'm looking for a solution
that does one of the following:

1) Removes/disables the menu bar completely.


2) Removes/disable access to the View and Help menus in Explorer


3) Disables functionality of items in the View and Help menu to
effectively render them harmless.

I've seen some solutions that involve using ResHacker but I was hoping I
didn't have to go there yet.

Thank you,
