    Server 2008 R2 GPO - Reset Internet Explorer Setting?

    We're having a problem with some 3rd party software that seams to only work after the student goes to internet explorer/tools/internet options/advanced/Reset Internet Explorer Settings. Reset.

    I've been poking around GPO, but can't find a 'reset' option, and Google hasn't shown me how to do it with 2008 R2. Anyone know where the option is to Rest IE?

    Edit: I'm looking for a way to automatically reset IE for the students.

    Hi

    On the Advanced Tab, look at the bottom. There is a reset button.

    If not there then check the following two found in a GPO called inetres.admx


    Do not allow resetting Internet Explorer settings
    Do not allow resetting Internet Explorer settings

    Reg enteries
    HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel!DisableRIED
    HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel!DisableRIED

    Thanks Sukh. What I'm wanting to do actually is to Automatically Reset IE for the students at login as that seams to be a fix.

    Hi

    I have not had a chance to test How to reinstall or repair Internet Explorer in Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP
    However, you may have to play around with this and run this silently as a logon script.
