If you are a Systems Admin you would use gpmc.msc and change the relevant policy

What is the change you need to make?

hope this helps:

There is manage ADD-on GPO settings, which you can configure & as you know there is lot of sites & you don't know until you have good control with firewall you will end up some site not displaying properly.

Add-ons and Third-Party Browser Extensions

Approving each one is a task,but if you have firewall in place you can restrict unnecessary sites instead configuring each & every addon for sites.

In my org add-on enable/disable feature is provided to us,so there filter applied at firewall for spyware or adware related sites.

I'll suggest let add-on feature be disbale & allow user to do it,instead have more control from proxy/firewall server.

here is my issue. In the IE 8 advanced settings tab there 2 setting to enable TLS 1.1 and 1.2. Of course group policy does not have an option to enable those. So i thought a work around would be to disable the group policy for IE settings. If these users were not in domain they would be able to select those options.

no that is what i needed. the GPMC that comes with server 2008 is version 6.0. It doesn't have the options for IE 8. I tried to find RSAT for windows 7 but had no luck. Thanks.
