SAFER security levels

Reading Michael Howards blog, I saw an article about safer browsing using software restriction policies.


Browsing the Web and Reading E-mail Safely as an Administrator, Part 2


He mentions there are 3 security levels that are not normally displayed in the Group Policy Editor


Unfortunately he only tells us the value to get Basic User to display, so I have added the others below.



0x10000 – Constrained (also named Restricted)

0x20000 – Normal User (also named Basic User)

0x01000 – Untrusted

0x31000 – to get all 3 


Copy the text below to make a reg file
