Locking down IE
Want to lock down your Internet Explorer browsers so that people in your office can't delete potentially good forensic evidence?
There's a setting inside of IE where you can delete IE history. Conversely there's a group policy setting where you can set it so that a certain number of days are kept at all times.
To set this go into Group policy management console
User Configuration, Policies, Administrative Templates, Windows Components, then Internet Explorer
In that section you'll see lots of options that align with the menu options in IE.
Now before you say... well gee IE is the most attached browser, why are you still using that? These days the bad guys are targeting ALL of the browsers as Alun points out in this blog post: http://msmvps.com/blogs/alunj/archive/2011/02/06/1787759.aspx
