I need to make a few changes for IE and would like to push them out via GPO. If it is necessary to use a reg key that is also fine, but would like some guidance as to where these settings would be located:

Compatibility View settings, Add website- I have 2 websites I need to add

Privacy tab, Settings, pop up blocker settings, add 2 websites to the allowed sites

Privacy tab, Sites, add 2 websites to always allow

Advanced tab, uncheck - Reuse windows for launching shortcuts
Advanced tab, check- show friendly urls
Advanced tab, check- allow active content to run files on my computer
Advanced tab, uncheck- do not save encrypted pages to disk

You need to download the IE administrative templates and add them to your Group policy. You will be able to make the changes you need in these templates, it is pretty straight forward. There is a template for IE8 and IE9 and IE10 and so on. Just Google "IE administrative templates"

it does not let me add the admx file to group policy only the .adm?
This is a 2008 R2 server that we are managing the group policies from. I have created a central store and copied the adml, admx and adm files into that central store, but do not see a new Internet Template?

I am sure there are other group policies that would have pushed out what was necessary, but the IE maintenance was not performing as expected so a registry key search was used and various keys were added to the group policy to enforce the changes I needed in IE
