The browsers cannot be re-configured by users.

Patrons must use their my.ryerson account to login to a wireless network. Any file copied or downloaded to hard drive will be automatically removed and cannot be recovered after reboot / restart. Patrons should save their files on a removable media (e.g. USB, CD, Floppy) before logging off. No personal software may be installed onto the borrowed laptops.
