I was able to find a command that will soften the IE security settings to stop the blocked site warning"

rundll32.exe setupapi.dll,InstallHinfSection IESoftenAdmin 128 %windir%\inf\IEHARDEN.INF

Is there a reverse command? I am looking for a way to re-harden IE from either the command line or registry (so I can script it) for all users.

Is this possible?

Reset IE to factory defaults.

As for all users, usually a GPO will do that. Are you in a domain environment?

Typically I use the command during post build followups before the server is on the domain. I know how to reinstall IE Enhanced Security manually but I am looking for a command line way to do it so I can make an attempt at automating it.

I guess all users was the wrong wording. I mean any users that log onto the box. If I recall the command softens security for all accounts on the box.

Would resetting IE to defaults take care of that? Is there a command that can be run from the command line to do this?

Also this is IE 6 if that helps

Thanks

Download that and open managing_ieesc.doc, browse to page 18 and it will instruct you to setup hardening via GPO, assuming your are using Server 2003. Hope this helps.
