- Disable/Enable Set Internet Options in Windows XP
© Doug Knox - rev 5/21/2003
Additional note: Restricting Internet Options in IE also has the side effect of restricting Folder Options in Windows Explorer. Undoing the NoBrowserOptions setting with this script will re-enable the Folder Options in Windows Explorer. Your antivirus software may report this script as potentially malicious, or a possible virus. This is because the script writes to the System Registry.
5/21/2003 - Added code to set the NoFolderOptions value to 0, as well, as the NoBrowserOptions value.
Usage: Download xp_fix_internetoptions.vbs and save this file to your hard drive. Navigate to where you saved it and double click the file. The VB Script file will check for the appropriate value and if not found will create it. If the value was found, it will be toggled to its opposite state and you will be informed that you need to restart. This script can be viewed in Notepad or any text editor, as to the specific Registry key and value that are updated..
