Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You could change it via registry key here:

or

from start > Run > GPEDIT.MSC
Find "Administrative Templates", drill to "Windows Components", "Internet Explorer"
Double click on Internet Explorer to get a long list and locate "Prevent Performance of First Run Customize Settings"
Right click, select properties, and set to "Disable"
Click on Apply, OK, and exit Group Policy Editor

It is not a tutorial (in my experience), just set up variables. The fastest and simplest way is to just answer the questions as the settings need to be established anyway.
