change internet explorer 8 security settings with registry

Last Modified: 2012-06-21
Hello All,

I am trying to change an Internet Explorer 8 security feature via registry editor. The setting i am trying to change is when i go to 'run' and type INETCPL.CPL, click on the security tab, and click the sites button. There is a checkbox for 'Include all network paths (UNCs)'. right now the box is greyed out and the top checkbox 'Automatically detect intranet network' is checked and is also greyed out. Is there a way i can get the 'Include all network paths (UNCs)' box checked using the registry editor?
