ITENG: how about to do a GUI that would disable, enable rules remotely. for example, i used to work in a school, where the teacher needs to enable the rule to be used by his student, once his lecture ends, he needs to disable the rule. as an ISA admin, i dont wish to give admin access for every teacher, so to have a simple stand alone GUI that would enable disable rule(s) remotely is a wonderful solution.

If you want to develop it as a web interface, then each teach would have to authenticate first via a logon page, and then based on that provided credentials, a set of permitted actions would be granted to the teacher.
these permitted actions would be supplied by the isa admin to each teacher
you are the expert in this , i know nothing when it goes for programming
Regarding the splash screen... you want to pop up once when user goes to google.com and then again when he decides to go to yahoo.com??? or do you want it to pop up only when he first opens IE? If you want it only when he first opens IE then you can deploy a custom home page with group policy in a windows domain.
The other way, someone would have to write an extension on the TCPIP stack known as a layered service provider (eg. Firewall Client), or an ISA filter. I am not a very good C++ programmer.
