Cannot Disable I. E. Privacy Tab with Group Policy

Posted on 2007-07-31
Last Modified: 2013-12-08
I have removed all access to 6 of the 7 Internet Explorer Properties Tabs. (right click IE icon, click
properties) However, I cannot get rid of the Privacy Tab. I even uninstalled IE 7. Did not matter. The really
strange thing is that I have other PCs running with the same OS and the same policy, and they do not have
the Privacy Tab. I am wondering if it is a combination of 1 setting, blocking the other. I am lost on this one.
Desktops: XP sp2. Server:  Windows 2000 Server sp4. Brand new builds on desktops.
BTW, in the place where you disable the other tabs, there is no policy there for Privacy Tab.
Another oversight by Microsoft?

    Thanks Phadke. Sorry I took so long to get back to you. The suggestion worked perfectly and has now become a standard setting in my policies. Thanks again!
