There are MANY ways to do this. The easiest is to do a transparent proxy as
You're other options is to firewall off all traffic trying to reach port 80
You could also disable NAT altogether if you in corporate environment and
only need web/ftp/ssl access.

Or if you belong to a domain you can create a policy that will set these
settings on all users pc's and not allow them to change it.

Take your epic :>
