Preventing Win2k user from clearing browser history

How do I disable a Windows 2000 user's ability to clear his browser history in Internet Explorer 6? We are having a problem with one employee!
Use group policy administrative templates. The setting Windows Components\Internet Explorer\internet control panel\disable the general page removes that tab from Internet Options. The delete history option is available there. To just disable history deletion, you can use the GPO setting windows components\internet explorer\disable changing history settings.
