IE Administrator Approved ActiveX

I like to run IE with ActiveX for the internet set to administrator approved.  This allows me to run things such as windows update, media player, macromedia flash, without all the other activex possibilities to worry about 😉  This is the reg file I use to set the administrator approved controls


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\AllowedControls]
; ShockWave flash
; MediaPlayer  ( old verion, hence commented out)
; Media Player 10
; Microsoft Update
; Microsoft Tranfer Manager
; (“W3C-DOM XML Document 6.0 (Apartment)”)

    Ha! Not only is the old version commented out, but I bet it didn’t work anyway *grin*. See: dowrd.
