more details please. what are you running? linux, mozilla, opera, IE, win95, win2k?

if IE you can got to internet optoins/sicurity/custom level and disable downloads.

obviously you will have the internet optoins disabled so customers can't get back in and turn in on.

The best bet would be to build a custom internet explorer installation using the Internet Explorer Administration Toolkit available for free on the Microsoft website.

What are they downloading? I would have thought if you only wanted them to browse, you wouldn't have put a download link on there - or am I missing something?

I think his business is an internet cafe or something along those lines Baldy.

That makes sense.... I was thinking he had a business and people were downloading stuff off his web site. I didn't think of an internet cafe.

Wouldn't it be nice if people wanting to know how long that all important peice of string is, could at least tell us the color!

Sarcasm aside,
more info needed, there are a heap of ways of doing this sort of thing, and all the best ones are specific to your situation, which of course none of us have any real idea what you do, let alone what kindoff set up you have.
