It can be done on IE itself, by configuring the homepage and
then altering some registry key (I don't know which one) which
restricts the ability of the users to customize certain aspects
of IE.

On the squid side, something like this can be done:
Set up a REQUIRED http_auth acl, and a redirector which checks
whether the user has already done an access in some configured
amount of time (2 hours seems a good estimate). If not, it's redirected
to the policy page. A reload will get him to the desired resource.
Should be a close enough approximation of your specs.
