    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.

    key="SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\ScriptedDiagnosticsProvider\Policy"
    valueName="EnableQueryRemoteServer"

    key="SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\ScriptedDiagnostics"
    valueName="EnableDiagnostics"

    key="SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\ScriptedDiagnostics" valueName="ValidateTrust"

    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.
