I doubt very much you can do this in Windows without using some sort of 3rd party software or hardware to implement this.
IE is built into Windows 2000/XP so you can load a web page without loading IE first.

You could use security groups to restrict access to C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer and only allow certain users to run IE if they are a member of the group. It won`t ask for user/pass as that will be provided when you first logon otherwise you need some sort of Proxy Server installed.
