    Is there a way to limit Windows Internet explorer to surf only on a single site, like hotmail? And prevent users from surfing all over the net.



    I have windows XP Pro, IE 6.0

    you need a "Parental Control Software"
    "Net Nanny" comes to mind, but it is not free. to find free alternatives try searching.
    btw Google is your friend :)

    No....

    Tools > Internet Options > Content > Content Advisor. It won't work as well as some software, and I don't think it can limit access to only one site (not without entering in every domain name in existence. But you don't want to do that anyway (even hotmail wouldn't work, it uses multiple domains to log you in). I haven't tried it personally, but I wouldn't be suprised if it does what you needed. Approved sites and ratings can be messed around with until they are satisfactory (several domains will be needed if you want just hotmail to work, look at the address bar while logging in). This can be tested by attmpting to view an adult site or something like that. I'll leave that to you though (actually it's best if you don't test it, that can cause problems...).

    He's not going to get anywhere then. MSN uses like three or four different domains just to log you in. Then there Windows update....

    Actually, I would prefer if I can limit that user on my pc to just be able to check his email account.

    A POP mail account can be accessed by a free email app like Mozilla Thunderbird. You could then hide, disable, deny permission to IE. No surfing, just email then.
