We are getting ready to deploy a web application that requires us to use IE8, however we need to make settings on the General tab of IE.  For example, I need to uncheck "Enable tabbed Browsing" and make some Appearance changes.  I know how to add trusted sites and change security levels.  What can I do to force the Genaral Tab settings through GP?

Not to look like an Expert just posting blind links, I apologize in advance for this.  The ability to manipulate IE8 through GPO is well documented:

If you have any specific questions or need clarification, please let me know.

Do you have any Windows Vista/7/2008 machines on your network (even if you just have one).  The reason I ask is because then you can also use group policy preferences to set IE settings.

IE settings can often be a pain natively (especially things like trusted sites)

Thanks
