Hi,
I have been looking and looking and looking for this setting within GPM and I cannot seem to find it anywhere.  I am starting to wondering if I need to update the GPM somehow in order to get this option.

I would like to "Enable" the IE 7 Internet Zone security setting for "Allow previously unused ActiveX controls to run without prompt" via Group Policies.

I am running Windows Server 2003 R2 32-bit Standard Edition with GPM v.1.0.2

Is there a newer version than this and if so, where can I find it?

Client side is Windows XP Pro 32-bit with SP2 & SP3.

Thanks for all your help.

Bob

MrLonandB,
Thanks for the link, but I already tried that and it still didn't help.  I am looking for the specific setting called "Allow previously unused ActiveX controls to run without prompt" within IE 7 Settings.

It can be found by going to IE 7 - Internet Properties - Security Tab - Custom Level (within Internet Zone) - ActiveX controls and plug-ins.

This setting is not available within IE 6, only IE 7.

Thanks for trying.

Anyone else?
