    Perhaps use more sentences, to unravel the complicated logic in that single sentence?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    This is more an Operating System related question, as you'd have to modify program access to several user groups, unless that user is authenticated, in which case you can promote him into a user group that has access to IE.
    With simple C programming, you can't keep a user from just clicking the IE shortcut himself.

    Disable internet usage

    Hello
    i m an engg student and i want to make a project "INTERNET ACCESS CONTROL" in C for my own internet Lab LAN in which i want to assign user ID and Password to each student of my college so that as they sit on pc for browsing any sites they have to enter their user id and their pasword on that pc and a checking has to perform at the server side that whether the user is valid or not if the user is not a valid one that the server should not forward any request from that Pc based on its IP address mechanism all the request coming from that pc where unauthorised client is sitting has to be blocked
    whereas URL request coming from a user who is authorised has to be forwarded is their any mechanism to block the URL request using C or C++ as a programming language. as i m using JAVA for rest of other purpose.

    Lots of ways of doing this, but perhaps using a sort of authenticating proxy server would do the trick - block normal port 80 access via the router....write a proxy server that users must authenticate against first....?

    You could do this in pretty much whatever language you want...even Java!
