How to disable "Fix connection problems" button

I am currently working on kiosk and was doing good on locking it down until I discovered that if end user clicks on a broken link they get "This page can't be displayed". The issue is when they get this page there is a "Fix connection problems" button on the page. A user is able to click it and with some navigation can reach the control panel.

Is there a group policy, Registry setting or IE setting that will disable the "Fix connection problems" button?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Windows 7 should support these features via Group Policy. Contents are in sdiageng.admx template file.

Unfortunately I'm on a Windows 10 machine right now so I can't help you further, but I'm sure looking through Group Policy you can find them.
