Restricted registry access in Internet Explorer when using Windows SteadyState

By default, Windows SteadyState contains an option that restricts shared computer users (SCUs) from accessing the registry directly. This setting might prevent the user from saving changes to some settings in the Internet Options dialog box, such as the following:

  • General tab: Home page
  • Security tab: Security level for this zone, and Enable Protected Mode
  • Privacy tab: Sites, Advanced, and Default
  • Content tab: AutoComplete
  • Programs tab: Default web browser
  • Advanced tab: Advanced Internet Explorer settings

For more information on this issue, including potential causes, workarounds, and resolutions, see: Microsoft KB Article KB960874.
