The way our profiles are at the moment, each user gets a local profile created when they log into a machine. Apart from it being slow, it also means that when they first run IE they get all the phishing filter and homepage/searchpage settings questions etc every time.
Is there a way to disable these things in IE7 and just get it to go straight to the homepage as set in gpo?
you could just change the ntuser.man to .dat change the settings in ie7 log and then change it back to .man file
When you've installed the IE7 ADM, the policy you're looking for is:
Prevent performance of First Run Customise settings - Enabled - Go directly to homepage
Ive ran the msi but cant see where it would have put the adm for me to add?
never mind - found it in program files.
Installed and enabled.
I have made the changes to the policy as suggested but still get the FIX MY SETTINGS message, is it possible to stop that happening via GPO?
I keep getting the enable phishing filter on first use as well, even though the other stuff has stopped appearing...

Its Called "Prevent Fix Settings FunctionalityCode:This policy setting prevents users from performing the "Fix settings" functionality related to Security Settings Check. If you enable this policy setting, users cannot use the "Fix settings" functionality. If you disable this policy setting, users can use the "Fix settings" functionality. If you do not configure this policy setting, users will be able to use the "Fix settings" functionality. Note: When this policy setting is enabled, the "Fix settings" option in the Information bar shortcut menu should be disabled.
Well we tried this setting at first and all it does is grey out the option to fix my settings..it doesnt actually remove it from coming up. All I want is for pupils to log in and just get their home page without any fancy messages or temporary homepages...
