Hi Rsbgroup,

It appears that "Internet explorer maintenance" has been removed from group policy with IE10 (you will find when you upgrade your browsers on the other machines, it will no longer work for them either).

MS have moved this functionality to an ADM:
http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=37009

And group policy preferences in combination:

User configuration -> preferences -> control panel settings -> Internet Settings -> New -> IE 10

We are facing a similar problem, in that we cannot apply these policies until the Server has been upgraded.

Thanks

Open up start -> run and type gpmc.msc

right click on the policy you want to amend and click "edit.."

Expand the "user configuration" and "policies" hives

Right click on "Administrative Templates"  and click "Add/Remove Templates"

Click add and browse to the ADM template.

The new options will now appear under Administrative Templates.
