    by using the profile as 1 user you have locked it to them. You need to export it and add authenticated users (or whatever group) on the export process

    Well I am thinking logon with the profile, run IE8, then close it. Now logoff. In theory if you named it differently, you'll need to update the profile name in AD for that particular user.

    You may also find if you named the profile differently and you have two DCs it can take a small amount of time to replicate that information. By default it's 4 times per hour.

    if you just load a profile as user x then as far as im aware it becomes their profile rather than shared (permissions get iffy which is why when creating them you have to export and add appropriate groups access to it). by exporting it from the computer it resides on (or is cached on) it sets all the permissions correctly. I re-found this the hard way trying to do a ts profile i just logged in as a test user and created a profile then just assigned it to test user 2 and basically it said sod off this profile aint right. Im not sure editing it would have the same effect but i wouldnt bet against it

    sted: I now understand what you mean, but that's just for newly created profiles. This isn't a newly created profile/user but one that is already there and has been for some time.

    If the only way to change IE settings is to make a new profile then I'm leaving it until summer. I usually do all user profile changes then, just thought I could "tweak" this one for a bit of peace from the teacher.

    Thanks for the help guys, much appreciated.

    where am i going wrong?!

    ie8 settings.png

    been banging our heads on this one

    every setting is good (well what we can see anyway) but each time you login with the newly created profile we get the Internet Explorer settings bit come again

    login as an admin and its ok

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advanced

    I would probably recommend you start a new profile, seeing as you now have IE8 installed. Make sure you run IE8 (once logged on) and any other application, then logoff and rename NTUSER.DAT.
