Hi,

we want to enable two GPO politics for all users :
1. - Automatic prompting for file downloads
2. - "Use SSL 3.0" and "Use TLS 1.0"

When we enabled them in location - see below, options in internet explorer are grayed out for all users and they cannot change it (enable/disable/uncheck USE TLS 1.0)
1. Windows Components/Internet Explorer/Internet Control Panel/Security Page/Restricted Sites Zoneshow/Automatic prompting for file downloads
2. Windows Components/Internet Explorer/Internet Control Panel/Advanced Page/Turn off encryption Support

Question is : How can we achieve that the settings will be set according description and users will have still option to change it.

Thank you.

Policies are firmly set and cannot be changed by design.  You will have to use a login script to acheive your goal.  You can run a simple script to set this flag, but your problem will be that the IE setting will be reset the next time the user logs on.  

If the user changes it, after the script is run, then once the user logs on the next time, it will re-apply.

Do you want this to happen, or would you like to just set this one time only?

The two registry values you want for the second policy are:

1.   HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\EnableHTTP1_1

The SSL/TLS settings (USE SSL 2.0, USE SSL 3.0, USE TLS 1.0) are all combined into the following key...you want the second option:

2.   HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\SecureProtocols

1.   A value of "0" means that all 3 are unchecked
2.   A value of "160" means that USE SSL 3.0 and USE TLS 1.0 are checked and USE SSL 2.0 is not
3.   A value of "168" means that all 3 are checked.

Automatic prompting for file downloads is actually ZONE-specific.  Do you want to enable this for the "Internet" zone?

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones contains the zones:

0 = My Computer
1 = Local Intranet
2 = Trusted Sites
3 = Internet
4 = Restricted Sites
0
