    Here is registry tweak to disable InPrivate Browsing in IE8, i don't know if there is another normal or alternative way to disable it. But if you are familiar i using registry editor then follow the steps given below but don't forget to make a backup of registry first in case you messed up something.

    Step1: Open Registry Editor , Go to Start -> Run -> regedit
    Step2: Navigate to following registry key:
