Default general question of how to implement a requirement

Hi, I have a friend who's working on a web application where one of the requirements is that the browser's menubar, address bar, and toolbars cannot be shown. The users are required to use Internet Explorer. Unfortunately, in IE numerous ways exist for the user to get a browser window with those components shown even if the current browser window is not showing them. Here are a couple of those ways:
  • pressing F11
  • pressing Ctrl+N
  • holding down Shift while clicking on a hyperlink
  • pressing Shift+Enter while a hyperlink has focus
  • right-clicking on a hyperlink and then selecting "Open in New Window"
  • pressing Shift+F10 while a hyperlink has the focus and then selecting "Open in New Window"
I realize there are many "piecemeal" ways to address this requirement, but I would prefer to find a single, thorough solution. The solution does not necessarily have to use Javascript or be limited to the use of Javascript. Anyone out there have any good ideas? Possibly "outside-the-box" ideas? Thanks in advance!!!


P.S. Please don't ask why it's a requirement and please don't lecture me as to why it should not be a requirement.
