Blocking download of IE9

Posted on 2011-03-15
Last Modified: 2012-06-21
Hello, I tested the blocker toolkit from Microsoft (.adm template) that disable the automatic delivery of IE9 via automatic updates and updating the registry not to allow download of IE9. For some reason, I tested this and it only applies to blocking automatic updates buit still can manually download IE9. Any thoughts on how to go about this cleanly? Thank you...,

That would be the first thing I would tackle, how much time do you  spend removing viruses/spyware/malware ?

Removing the ability to install items will be far easier to handle than trying to "Block". With admin rights they can and will find away around your attempts to block things.

I can't do that because some users require to download certain things. I need to have the ability to block IE9 specifically. I am thinking of creating hash rules via GPO but can't find hash codes for IE9..

Ok, this may help you find the hash value so that you can create that software restriction
