Compatibility in IE for all users

I am upgrading a PC for a client from XP to Win 7 32-bit professional. I am wondering if there is any way to set the default profile to open IE in compatibility view. Many of their users need this setting for a few sites they visit, and I'm hoping a default profile would then keep that setting and push it to any new user on the machine. Is that correct? Is there another way to do it?

Thanks for any help.

Hi

You could create a GPO with a populated list of websites you want to open in compatibillity mode.
Find it here: Computer Configuration]\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Internet Explorer\Compatibility View\Use Policy List

If you have no domain controller to send GPO's there is Always the Local Policy Editor in Windows 7.

Awesome, the local GPO should work really well since it's only one machine.

Thanks for the help!
