    IE Update

    This will probably have been descussed before but i can't seem to solve the problem.
    After a few openings of IE, the page changes to

    go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=54843

    I have a reg file that should stop this ..

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
    "NoUpdateCheck"=dword:00000001

    But it only does it for current user.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    I've not seen that page before. I presume you're not running IE7 on your workstations?

    You could (in theory) place a reg file in the NETLOGON share and run it silently at logon, so it applies to any user that logs in. (Working on the presumption this computer is in a domain).

    Code:
    regedit /s \\servername\NETLOGON\regfile.reg /y

    No, where still running IE6, and that page seems to be the IE7 download page.

    The computer is in the domain so will give that reg file a go. Will it work when a student logs on as they won't have access to edit the registry. I'm also presuming that the above reg edit (no updates) includes that page too.

    Copy and paste the code you posted into notepad and save as anything.reg then place this file within the NETLOGON share. Copy and paste the code I posted within a logon script.
