Last Modified: 2010-04-18
I need to create a new registry key as follows:


Value Name:  NoBandCustomize
Data Type:     Reg_DWord
Value Data:    1

Can this be done through a new custmozied Administrative template. I need this value on an OU* containg several 2003 servers and don't want to do it manually.

Many thanks

You have this setting in the standard GPO setting: Users Configuration->Administrative Templates->Windows Components->Internet Explorer->Toolbars


Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Ask the Experts
Rather than creating a custom registry setting for the GPO, this particular setting is already supported in the security template that the GPO already knows about.

From the Group Policy Object Editor (Gpedit.msc), navigate to User Configuration, Administrative Templates, Windows Components, Internet Explorer, Toolbars.   The field you want is called "Disable customizing browser toolbars"

BTW: This is a per-user settings... not a server-based setting
