disable BACK & FORWARD button of internet explorer

Hi,
We want to disable BACK & FORWARD button of the browser so
that user is forced to navigate through the menu options
provided in the site. The browser used is Internet
Explorer only.
Please suggest some solution or any other alternate
approach.
Early response is appreciated.

Regards,
Ashvin

You want to hide the toolbar.

I don't know if you can do this on a browser window that
is already open but you can do this when you open a new
window. From javascript, window.open is the method to open
a new window.

Here is a reference. Notice one of the parameters
is "toolbar". Setting it to no should hide the toolbar.

There might be a way for the user to open the toolbar
again.
