    probably, restricting the sites they can open is a good option. the same old school system... remember?? ;)

    Unfortnuately this is not an option . . . As they need to be able to access a wide range of sites, just not able to download from them to the HDD

    A web browser, by definition, downloads as it displays information. That's why you have temporary internet files.
