Internet Explorer, connection tab disabled and so on

When you login in the domain of the customer for which I’m actually working, there are some init scripts that set some “security features” in Internet Explorer. For example the sysadmin disable the connection tab from which you could change proxies, set the start page as the corporate portal, and also disable some script debugging feature.

As I’m a web developer and I have to use IE for developing (the customer wants IE, sight!), I need the ability to have the script debugging and alerts on every scripts error, to change the connection parameters in order to set a local proxy for sniffing the http headers (useful when developing and need to understand what is passing from server to client) and also I don’t want the corporate portal as start page because it takes a long time to load and it’s even ugly.

So, here it is, just copy and paste the following codes into a text editor (even notepad is ok), save it as my-cool-settings.reg and execute it with a double click.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel]
"Connwiz Admin Lock"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
"Error Dlg Displayed On Every Error"="yes"
"Disable Script Debugger"="yes"
"Start Page"="about:blank"
