How can I prevent Windows 10 from updating Internet Explorer security settings.

I have a really hokey bank where I live in Ecuador. In order to do banking on their website, I have to do a host of security settings on Internet Explorer. The bank has a 25-page document on how to set up the security settings in Internet Explorer. Seriously. 25 pages. Here it is:


(Scroll to the second half of the document to get to the English version)

Crazy, isn't it.

Well, I can't very much change how the bank chooses to operate, but my beef is with Windows 10 and IE. I go through these 25 pages and get everything working. Then whenever Windows 10 does updates, I'm like "ACK!!!!". Now my banking website doesn't run properly any more. sheesh. So back to the 25 pages of instructions. Are you frustrated just reading this.

Before responding with "find a new bank", can someone let me know how I can permanently set up all those security settings so they don't get reset with each Windows update?

I have user who's Internet Explorer 11 favorites keep disappearing.   I then restore her favorites, and then later in the day or the next day her favorites have disappeared again.
 The environment is Citrix XenApp 6.5, Windows 2008 r2.  The user has a Win 7 desktop computer with the ICA client to get into Citrix environment.  
The user started to get involved in goto.webex webinar's - Just thought I would add this incase it makes a difference.

What could be causing this, and how do I make it stop. ??
On Windows 10 computers I'm able to map network drives to user's accounts by mapping the network drives to the "" location and then having the users type in their usernames (which are their corporate email addresses) and their passwords.

However, when I try to do this within Server 2016 using the exact same method within File Explorer I get the error message shown in the screenshot.

What setting(s) do I need to change so that I will be able to access and map accounts as mapped network drives within File Explorer? I believe that there are things that need to be changed within Internet Explorer and possibly the group policy settings but I'm not sure of exactly which settings need to be changed.

Internet Explorer 11 doesn't allow me to download Google Chrome.
 When I attempt to do so - I receive a message that says something about this page or site can not be contacted or found from IE.

However I can download FireFox from Internet Explorer  successfully. And I can even download Google Chrome from FireFox.
Note : This is on a Windows 10 and 7 workstation.

So whats wrong with IE 11 not being able to download Chrome ?  And How can I resolve this problem.

Since the May Patch Tuesday our users are getting annoying security pop-ups when navigating between sites in IE - "You are about to view pages over a secure connection..."

When they tick the box "In the future, do not show this warning" or untick the box "Warn if changing between secure and not secure mode" in Advanced Internet Options, it stays unticked for a while, then resets itself and the pop-ups appear again.

I have created a group policy to try and force this setting applied to all users and computers, but this doesn't appear to make any difference and still the pop-ups are appearing!  

We also have another group policy that is used to force the opening of certain web pages to open in IE when launched from Chrome.  I mention this in case it has any bearing on the issue

Can anyone help with this as it is driving everyone mad?

Many thanks

I have an issue accessing Youtube. When I enter in the address bar, I am redirected to

What could be the problem ??

Thank you for your help.

Because of a new work project, I now need to sign in with Google to the email associated with my client. So, during working hours, I must be signed in that way with Chrome.

However, I listen to YouTube Classical music videos all day when I work, and my YouTube account's associated with my personal Gmail account. If I log in to YouTube (with IE) with that personal account, will it interfere with my work Gmail doings in Chrome?


This is related to Windows 10 and Browser:
- A client uses 3 browser on the same time (IE, Edge and Chrome)
- He uses IE a lot; so I set IE as his default browser
-The 2nd mostly used is Chrome

Question: Is there any setting in Windows 10 which i can setup the browser as the followings:
1) Default: IE
2) 2nd: Chrome
3) 3rd: Edge

I would like to know if Internet Explorer is considered an application or program.  Recently I purchased software online from a company which advertised that it could transfer everything (files, programs and settings) from one computer to another, provided they were both running Windows.  I performed the steps to transfer everything, but Internet Explorer 11 was not transferred.  The new computer, with a fresh Windows 7 installation, continued to run IE8, and it could not be upgraded.  I approached the software vendor for a refund, because a program was not transferred as advertised.   They declined, stating:  "Internet Explorer is part of Windows Operating System. It is not a normal application; rather, it is an integrated package in Windows itself, similar to Task Manager or IIS."   Before I dispute the credit card charge with my bank, I'd like to know if their response is valid.

Attempting to push proxy settings via gpo.

Background: We are running a current domain functional level of 2008 R2 and a forest functional level of 2003.

I am trying to push out our proxy settings via GPO as we had done in the past. I have been making the changes from our primary domain controller and applying to a test machine with just this user defined in the GPO.

1. I attempted to add the proxy to the local computer then pull the registry settings in from HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Connections. This method did not work. Even after an gpupdate/force and restarting the computer.

2. I attempted to add the setting through GPO from GPM, User Configuration, Control Panel Settings, Internet Settings, New > IE10, Connections Tab, enter settings and press F6 to apply. Still no effect.

Client machines are Win 7 with IE11. Soon to be replaced with Win 10 computers.
I have a recent installation of Windows 7 Professional SP-1, which includes IE8.  I am unable to install IE10 or IE11.  The installation appears to start out OK, including downloading and installing required updates, and downloading and installing the browser itself.  But In both cases, after "Restarting Programs", there is a message that installation did not complete.  A link appears on the desktop to an Internet Explorer Troubleshooter, but all it says is that my version is outdated, and I need to update it.  I do not find IE8 among the applications in Control Panel>Programs and Features or installed updates, so I can't remove it.
I need to (transparent to users) remove the check for (Win7 Pro and Win10 Pro) Internet Options>Connections tab>LAN Settings "Use automatic configuration script" for all users - to stop using a proxy URL - as an outgoing web security product does NOT uncheck this upon uninstall. If left there, all internet will fail after SW uninstall.

I can't use just GPOs as many remote/vpn users won't process GPOs before connection (using SBL (Startup Before Logon) isn’t an option for other reasons). I tried usin deployment software to (batch script) locally copy a reg fix that clears the AutoConfigURL key upon startup-but this fix doesnt always work, normally it doesn't (copies to startup folder for all users and executes on logon):

reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings" /v AutoConfigURL /t REG_SZ /d "" /f

I also saw a DefaultConnectionSettings reg key fix - to flip the 9th binary bit to remove the check - but not all systems have this binary entry in registry - and i dont want to introduce a key to Win7/Win10 laptops that don't have it, dont know what it would effect would have on users that don't have it, etc.

What else can I try/reg key can I manipulate to remove the check mark other than Group Policy?
I have a client that will be using a web-based program with Win10 PCs as custom terminals running Internet Explorer 11.  For various reasons, some of these machines will be on a domain and others will just be offsite or in a small workgroup.

Seems that AD GP should allow for this on domain PCs but would like to know if anyone has already has an example.

As for the machines off the domain, what would be the best method?

We essentially want the user "jailed" in a fully functional IE without the ability to close the browser, access the start menu, hit ctrl + alt + delete, or do anything else to access the actual underlying system. The PC needs be full IE, but just IE and not ability to get to any other aspects of Windows 10.
Let me know if that makes more sense.

I posted a question earlier in regard to an error of 0x80070643 that I am getting on Windows Server 2008 R2 when I am trying to add the feature of Windows Server Backup.  I am wondering if the issue is related to IE 11.  In observing logs, it looks like IE 11 installed, but it is wanting to install it again in the updates.   It is seen and running fine on IE 11 but there is no listing of it in Control Panel / Programs or the registry that I can tell.  Something similar has been noted in reading about IE9.   A colleague suggested running cd "%userprofile%\Desktop" IE11Update.exe /update-no from an elevated command prompt to see if it updates and fills in missing listings.  If this is the case and worth a try, does anyone have a link to a safe IE11Update that would be safe to download?
Hi, I have an Html code for that I have used Bootstrap. I have one image on top and I decided to a fixed position of that one.

But when I'm using Position: Fixed then image size increased and looks very ugly on screen. This thing is happening in IE 11 only. I check other browsers where things working properly.

Is there any Solution to solve the IE 11 fixed background position bug?
I'm looking for way to configure IE, Chrome and Firefox to save bookmarks (if not cookies, history, etc as well) to an alternate location.    In this case, a useras Onedrive folder, which is a local folder.    I'm not looking to export or backup.

I need to stay at a certain version in Firefox because of a certain application. I need to stay on version 51. I disable updates but it still updates on its own. Very frustrating because once it updates,our helpdesk gets flooded with calls once the application stops working. From Google searches I see that many others have the same problem. Is there a solution for this?
When click on an email link in Internet Explorer, it does not open the default email program, but a new page opens up asking to add an email account instead.   Can this be fixed so that the default email program is opened?
