I want to set the IE9 setting under Tools, Internet Options, General, Browsing History Settings, Check for newer versions of stored pages to Every time I visit the webpage. I'm struggling to find out how to do this via GPO. We are running Windows Server 2008 R2 domain controllers in 2008 R2 domain function level.

I was going to add the "Administrative Templates" for IE9 but I didn't find anything in Microsoft' documentation to indicate that option was available.

Does anyone have any solutions?

There is a IE9 admin template, I'm using it at work for some new PCs.
This is the complete set of GPO settings for IE9 - from Microsoft

On quick inspection, it looks like there is not a setting for what you want, but I stand to be corrected.

As it the case with too many Microsoft settings, you have to alter a reg key, but at least you can do this in a GPO!

From another discussion:
The registry key is
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet
Settings\Syncmode5
