I am unable to access my security settings in IE due to group policy.  Is there a way to change it in the registry?

Hi,
Being relatively new answering questions,  is it considered good form to help a user hack the settings a company puts on thier machines?

I didn't ask how to do it, just asking is it possible for it to be done.

Hi,
The answer is a qualified yes.

  It is possible to do. but only temporarily, and as long as you have permission to edit the settings in question.  if you are an administrator on the machine, you should be able to as long as they didn't change the permissions on the registry keys to prevent you.

the settings get refreshed at an interval of 90 minutes by default.  this interval can be configured to be  whatever the admins deam necessary.

I'm sorry I jumped to conclusions.  :(
