    IE7 and group policy

    Hi All,
    Appologies if this has been delt with anywhere else but i've been having real problems with this and there seems little or nothing about it on the net.

    I had Internet access controlled by a policy which set all of the proxy settings and home pages etc. Everything worked fine until the machines were upgraded to IE7.

    Can someone tell me how to make these settings in GP work for IE7?

    Many Thanks
    Maximus

    HI

    I have the latest adms and I still have a problem with some of the machines not picking up the proxy settings but they pick up all the rest of the policy. Had to resort to a script to set the proxy.

    If anyone has any ideas please could you let me know.

    The IE7 ADM files are IE5, IE6 and IE7 compatible, but it just means that any clients running IE5 and IE6 cannot take advantage of the new IE7 policies.

    To set the homepage (with IE7 ADM) needs to be done in two places:

    User Config > Windows Settings > Internet Explorer Maintenance > URLs > Important URLs

    User Config > Admin Templates > Windows Components > Internet Explorer

    Disable changing home page settings

    To set the proxy:

    User Config > Windows Settings > Internet Explorer Maintenance > Connection > Proxy Settings

    For your reference, I would HIGHLY recommend you update the intres.adm IE7 version on the default domain policy and every OU that you have setup. You just overwrite the existing version.

    Hi
    GP seems to be applying the settings now, however some of the PC's are having problems with IE7. When you go in to IE7 it hangs, it seems that one or more of the addons is causing it problems. Does anyone know how to disable particular addons for every user?

    Regards
    Maximus
