Hi

We recently migrated from windows 2008R2 to Window 2012 DCs . We use XP as a client.

I have a generic user account and there will be 40 user using this generic account to do a certain activity without internet access on their PC.

I thought of setting  up a new  GPO and change the prox settings  to 127.0.0.1 and apply this policy for this particular generic account.
When i go to Gpedit.msc
Configuration > Policies > Windows Settings and Internet Explorer Maintenance is missing.

Please suggest , is there a way to sort this.

Thanks

Seems like something you could block at the router as opposed to setting up a lot of AD/GPO for a single device.

That feature is blocked by IE10, we had the same issue on our Server2008R2 where we need to change stuff, luckily we had a second DC with IE8

Hi,

Any settings that you previously configured with IEM will no longer work on computers where Internet Explorer 10 or newer is installed, regardless of the Windows version it’s been installed on. You must update your settings using Group Policy Preferences, Administrative Templates (.admx), or the Internet Explorer Administration Kit (IEAK).

Hope that helps:)
