How to disable in IE6 the Privacy Report (Registry)

Hi,

I would like to remove the option of Privacy Report... in the view menu of IE6.  I know there's a tweak in the registry to do this, but I lost my data about that.  It supposed to be written in the HKCU\SOFTWARE\POLICIES\MICROSOFT\INTERNET EXPLORER\CONTROL PANEL

Thanks alot if you know this key I can put there.

You mean Error Reporting? Simply right-mouse click my computer, choose Properties, and choose (I believe) the performance tab. (I'm not certian, as I am at work! : D  )

You should see at the bottom a button that reads "Error Reporting". Click it and just choose to disable it.

Just looked at an XP box here at work, it's actually under the Advanced tab in the Properties of My Computer.

the group policy is to remove the tab from the internet options,
Local Policy > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Internet Explorer > Internet Control Panel > Disable the privacy page

This doesn't however disable the view Privacy Report

I don't understand why you would want to do that anyway, all that is is a list of the websites with content on the current page, no harm in that.

Here is the regkey you are looking for:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel
dword PrivacyTab set equal to 1

Hi.

Thanks for responding.
I Finally found out what I was searching for.  It's the reg keys:  SecAddSites, SecRemoveSites...  To block the Privacy report.  

J79zlr, The harm that can be done there is that they can block access to cookies from all sites.  I don't want that! ;)

Still, I'm gonna accept your answer, cause it's still usefull for me.

Thanks again.

sorry I didn't understand what you were saying, that reg file I gave you removes the privacy tab from internet options, which would do what you want.  

I see the "settings" radio button now on the privacy report.
