There are some softwares from which we can browse website pages like Firefox, Google chrom, Real player , etc. I want to make a restriction for any software in computer (even the Internet exploerer) to browse except Outlook mail . How to do the same.

I don't under stand what you are saying. Outlook mail is not a browser. It a email system. Do you want to turn off outlook? Then go into your router or windows firewall and block port 25 and 110.

You may want to rewrite your question.

I mean which files do support to run internet (browsing). If I browse through Firefox or Google chrome, this mean iexplorer.exe running at that time or not? (any browser software is dependent to iexplorer.exe or not?)

Each browser uses its own exe. They do not use iexplore.exe.

I am in Firefox right now and when I go to task manager there is no iexplore running.

The internet uses no files. I uses a protocal called Hypertext Transfer Protocol or HTTP. A server will send the page to your browser over port 80 to your browser and it converts the HTTP to to layer 7 so you can read it. Some browsers are better at this than others. So far I find Crome to be the best.

Again what the heck are you trying to do?

Ok. Please do me a favor
1. I have 5 systems which are connected over a hub for LAN and all the users some what know which ip address (DNS,gateway) to be used for internet connection.
I am the system admin here, all the systems have been configured MSIMN (Outlook express) , hence internet connection is must for all the system.
Is there any way to restrict my users from using internet browsing via some programming? But at the same time MSIMN should work to send and receive mails.

I hope you understand what I am asking.

In that case simply block port 80. It wont stop Email but it will stop web browsing.
