Is there a VBScript that I can execute on remote workstations to centrally log what Internet Explorer add-ons are installed on that machine?  I am hoping to run this against all the PCs in our company to ensure that a specific add-in is loaded.

Thanks.

I have never done this before but yes this link might lead you in the right track.

From that link

The list of add-ons that are contained in the Add-on List policy setting are stored in one of the following registry subkeys:

    * HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Ext\CLSID
    * HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Ext\CLSID

We are not using any policies for the Add-ins, so there is no information there.  We wound up using Procmon to determine what dlls were being installed, and scripted it out.  Thanks.

No solution was presented for finding where the Add-ins are installed, unless using a policy (we are not).  We found a workaround for this particular situation, using Procmon to find the dll files that are installed, and recreating it in a script.

Overall, it is not a pretty solution, but it worked for this instance
