    disable the information bar in IE8

    I'm trying to run my new laptop without flash. I WANT to use IE8 just without flash, great... I installed flash as it kept nagging me on every site I visit. I've disabled flash and now it naggs on EVERY website that add-ons are disabled.

    I've followed it's own help to turn off the info bar but the instructions given actually just minimise the chance of it appearing!

    I found a reg hack that sets iexplorer x0 in local security (for those who google this problem) but that doesn't get rid of it either!

    I don't want to use chrome,firefox,safari,etc.

    To kill Flash Player in Internet Explorer you just need to set the following two registry keys...

    DisableFlash.reg
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ActiveX Compatibility\{D27CDB6E-AE6D-11CF-96B8-444553540000}]
    "Compatibility Flags"=dword:00000400
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ActiveX Compatibility\{8FFBE65D-2C9C-4669-84BD-5829DC0B603C}]
    "Compatibility Flags"=dword:00000400
    To re-enable it, simply delete the keys...

    EnableFlash.reg
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ActiveX Compatibility\{D27CDB6E-AE6D-11CF-96B8-444553540000}]
    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ActiveX Compatibility\{8FFBE65D-2C9C-4669-84BD-5829DC0B603C}]

    Since you're using Windows 7 you could also install IE9 and turn on the new ActiveX Filtering option.

    http://www.withinwindows.com/2011/02...ng-exceptions/

    One of the new features in Internet Explorer 9 is ActiveX Filtering, which allows you to surf around without executing ActiveX controls (similar to using NoScript and Mozilla Firefox).
