Default How to hide "Exceptions Tab" in SP2 Firewall

Is there a way to hide the "Exceptions" tab in Windows XP SP2's Firewall
(firewall.cpl) ?
Or is there a way to hide the entries on the "Exceptions" tab ?

The reason for my question is this :

I'm administering our company's network and I want to be able track my users
without letting them find out that I'm tracking them. My solution is to hide
the remote tracker's process from Task Manager and to hide my port exceptions
from firewall's interface.

Try using a "anonymous remote access" through Terminal Services. That should
help out your situation. If not there is a program called VNC that can allow
you remote access to computers in your network, it does not show up in the
remote computers system tray or anything. You can also choose to hide the VNC
process in Task Manager as well.

Hope this helps...
