IE settings - organized list - printout or spreadsheet

Is  there some kind of utility that could print out all the IE settings in some organized fashion so that if I wanted to do a side-by-side comparison between two IE configurations I could just cruise down the two configurations as opposed to having to go back and forth between two screens? If it could be dumped to a spreadsheet even better.

I tried the Gpedit suggestion. On my system the only IE settings I could find were located in local policy/user configuration/Windows/IE maintenance and they didn't have too much.  If I could print out the just the  Advanced Options other than with screen shots that would be a great help. Funny how sometimes what seems like a simple sensible feature is missing.

I realized that active scripting can be disabled in a specific zone on the security tab so I added the problem site  to Trusted sites and then I disabled scripting in the Trusted zone and  left active scripting enabled on the internet zone though so it doesn't affect any other sites.

I would still be interested in a utility that would print out all the IE settings.
