Where can I find the registry key for t PrivacTab in IE?

Discussion inprivacy generalstarted bymacchio82

I am working on a script to change certain Internet Explorer options for friends and family. I am working on one to change the Privacy Tab setting to the default level, which is medium. I have been searching the internet for days and I have not found the registry key to modify. If anyone can help me out I would greatly appreciate it.

If you open upInternet Explorer 6.0, underTools, clickInternet Options, and then clickPrivacy Tab, the setting I want to change is the scroll bar. Where is the registry key for that setting?

Privacy Settings (1A10) is used by the Privacy tab slider. The DWORD values are:

Based on the settings in the slider it will also modify the values in A8A88C49-5EB2-4990-A1A2-0876022C854F or AEBA21Fa-782A-4A90-978D-B72164C80120 or both appropriately.

I have found that resource on my own as well, but I do not understand what it means.

Do I change the 1A10 key? I do not have the location of the registry key that they mention – HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\AllowedControls

I am running on a Windows XP Pro with IE 6.0.

Is it here: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\3?

I did some searching on my own and that is one place where I found it. I know that the 3 means that it is a internet zone but that is for the security tab under internet options. I dont think what I found is the proper key to change.

Do you know where the key is located in the registry?

As noted in the MSKB I linked to its located in the below key as you mentioned.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\3

Take note of my above quote also in regards to thePrivacy Settings(1A10)is used by the Privacy tab slider.

The DWORD1A10is one of the key players along with the 2 Binary components shown inboldbelow that also play a part in what you are wanting.

Based on the settings in the slider it will also modify the values in A8A88C49-5EB2-4990-A1A2-0876022C854F or AEBA21Fa-782A-4A90-978D-B72164C80120 or both appropriately.

What I suggest you do is to place the Privacy slider at Medium(or whatever setting you want) and then export theZones\3registry key. Once that is done you can then edit that reg file to only have the 3 items you need in regards to the slider settings you select.
