I was wondering if anyone could tell me where to find the following settings in the registry and how to make them enabled.  We are launching a new program where over 700+ users need to make these changes and I don't want the users to have to run Internet Options and setup all the settings themselves.  Thanks in advance for your help.

Internet Zones:
   Internet
   Local Intranet
   Trusted Sites

Custom Level Settings
Downloads:
   Automatic prompting for file downloads  - Enable
   File download - Enable
   Font download - Enable

Miscellaneous
   Diplay mixed content

Thanks for the suggestions.  I have never done this before so any help someone could provide would be greatly appreciated.

I made the following changes in the registry for the settings I need and nothing happened.

hkey_local_machine/Software/microsoft/windows/internet settings/Zones 1
   1604 - Key Value is 0
   1609 - Key Value is 0
   1803 - Key Value is 0
   2200 - Key value is 0

hkey_local_machine/Software/microsoft/windows/internet settings/Zones 2
   1604 - Key Value is 0
   1609 - Key Value is 0
   1803 - Key Value is 0
   2200 - Key value is 0

hkey_local_machine/Software/microsoft/windows/internet settings/Zones 3
   1604 - Key Value is 0
   1609 - Key Value is 0
   1803 - Key Value is 0
   2200 - Key value is 0


Where do I go from here.

I really suggest doing this with group policy, all the settings you mentioned can be controlled there.

I just found out the group policy's are restricted by our IT department the same group who isn't helping us.  And the local policy's were never setup.


Any suggestions.
