How to forbid downloading files with Internet Explorer

Assuming that if a user of a given machine has chosen Internet Explorer as his/her browser, one can conclude that the user is not quite aware of hat he/she is doing. So just to be safe, it may be a good way to prevent the user from downloading any files from Internet if he/she is using IE.
Naturally, to force such a strange behavior we will use a good old registry tweak. First, we will open the Registry. Open the Start menu and enter regedit in the start menu searchbox:

On the right-hand pane click anywhere except the Name column and select New > DWORD (32-bit) Value:

Name the new value 1803:

Double-click on it and a window will open. Enter 0 in the Value data textbox:

Click OK and close the Registry Editor. To revert to your old settings simply delete the value 1803.
Note: This trick works for IE 6 through 9.
