I need to change some security settings for IE6(I know why are we still on IE6, it has to do with some sites we use that wont run on newer browsers) and I need to see if anyone knows where in GPO I can change it? Below and I have attached a picture:

In internet Explorer go to tools - internet options and choose the security tab.

Enable the two Active X security settings named: "Download signed active X controllers" and "Download unsigned active X controllers."
Enable the Three Security Script settings named: "Allow Scripting of Internet Explorer Webbrowser control," "Allow WEb pages to use restricted protocols for active content" and "Allow script-initiated windows without size or position constraints."

    Accepted Solution

    In the Group Policy Management Console, the local computer policies for Feature Controls are in \Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Internet Explorer\Security Features.

    The current user policies for Feature Controls are in \User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Internet Explorer\Security Features

    The way you would want this to be done is to use GPO to add sites to a trusted security zone, rather than lower security settings across the board.

    You have to edit the GPO settings for IE by entering into the  MMC microsoft management console
    1. Run command MMC
    2. locate internet explorer maintenance under windows settings in user config

    please refer the document given in the below site for further more details in group policies.
