    IE10 Upgrade - Meet Your New Browser

    Recently rolled out the IE10 upgrade to all Windows 7 machines. I can't seem to supress the new tab of 'Meet Your New Browser' each time a user logs into a machine. Has anyone else come across this problem? I have tried a few things to stop it;

    • GPO enabled - Prevent performance of First Run Customize settings
    • Taken following registry keys from HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main - IE10RunOnceCompletionTime, IE10RunOncePerInstallCompleted, IE10TourNoShow, IE10TourShown and IE10TourShownTime to no avail.


    I'd be really appreciative of any help on this one.

    I would also be interested to see if there is a GPO that can do this...

    Are your settings on user or computer config?

    I'm still on IE9 here (Don't ask, in house software) and recently the "Your browser has been updated" page keeps appearing even though it was disabled in GPO and had been for some time. Curious.

    I mean, it's not the end of the world, it's just one of those annoyances that is lingering around.

    I've suppressed it using the following:

    That's a user setting, not a computer setting.

    Thanks Norphy, I did previously have Prevent performance of first run customize settings enabled. Updated the inetres.admx and adml and that was renamed 'Prevent First Run Wizard'. I have it set just like yours but still nothing

    If you run gpresult /r from the command line, does the GPO with the policy in show in the list?

    It does indeed. I did wonder if it was a scheduled task like when the browser choice came in but there's nothing in there either.

    It seems to disappear when I go one further and drop IE11 on there. Hmmm. Very odd.

    Try this

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
    "PrivacyPolicyShown"=dword:00000001

    That's the one! Out of interest, how did you arrive at that key?

    Because I'm awesome .

    Just a bit of guess work. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main is where a load of keys appear on IE's first launch. The page that appears mentions the privacy policy.
