Internet Download Restriction

Last Modified: 2013-12-08
Right now I have HKEY_Current_User\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\3\1803 set to 3, which restricts internet downloads.  The problem is I need PDF files to be able to be viewed.  Is there a way to restrict files with the execption of certain extensions?
