Why do IE7 internet options revert back to original settings?
Posted on 2011-04-23
A user (part of domain), running Windows XP (SP3), IE7 has made a few changes to Internet Options Settings: example: Security (Internet, Custom Level, display mixed content (enable) in order to view a secure website on a separate company's website.
Other changes are made like: allowing cookies, allowing popus, trusted sites, etc......
I can get the site to connect if I reset all the settings that came from our trusted source (the company we are trying to access through https).
The next day, the changes I have made have been reverted back in IE7 and the user cannot view the secure site that we are trying to access.
What's causing this? Group Policy of some sort? The mahine? (not likely, I reinstalled IE, deleted IE temp, cookies, etc...). The user is a local admin on the local machine and no one else accesses this website.
