If you wish to prevent users from typing into the Internet Explorer address bar:

1. Log on as a user and manually configure the tool bars you wish to remove by uncheck them on the Internet Explorer View / Toolbars menu.

2. Run:  regedit /a IEBars.reg "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar\WebBrowser".

3. Log on with administrative privileges.

4. Edit the IEBars.reg file, removing all the Value Names except ITBarLayout. Here is a sample of the IEBars.reg file, after editing, exported from an Internet Explorer 6.0 installation, where only the address bar has been removed:
