Hello All,

I Need to know if you can disable 3rd party pop up blockers for ie 7 via po or some other way. Basically, we have people installing 2 or 3 of these toolbars out there, such as google, yahoo, etc. Id like for everyone to be forced to use only IE7's pop up blocker and disable the installationa nd execution of these other pop up blockers. Is there a way to do this via gpo or some other way?

Any suggestions, help, insight, or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Patrick

They can only install them if you have them setup with full administrator rights to their local PC.  Just set them up as a 'user' on their PC and they wont be able to install anything.

Hi Mike,
For sure on your comment but thats not an option within my company for various reasons.

Im looking to see if there is a way to block this natively in GPO or through IE7's GPO template or some other native way.

Thanks for trying though : )

The answer to that question is no.  Software installation is handled by the OS, not IE.  Yes you can limit a user's rights to go into add/remove programs via a GPO, but then would still be able to run the .exe directly  to install the 3rd party software.  Your only option is to remove their admin rights b/c that is the right that enables users to install software.
