if you could, right click the folder on the left
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\0


choose EXPORT, export it as KEY.reg

then zip that up and attach it to your next post

if you do no have a zip program, download tugzip (favorite at the moment)

install it, then right click the file and choose "add to key.zip"

Yes, you did...very good...not seeing what I wanted, but what the heck

OK, let's take a look at the following

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft \Internet Explorer\main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_LocalMachine_Lockdown\

right click the folder, and choose export > fix1.reg

now navigate to

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft \Internet Explorer\main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_LocalMachine_Lockdown
right click the folder, and choose export > fix2.reg


Attach both to next post.

Here is what I am proposing---I want to create two files...set.reg and reset reg.

using the reg files you supplied, you can double click the set.reg file, agree to the merge, and that will allow you to run the program

then click reset.reg and it will reset the security settings back to the default (and safe) setting.

OK, let's try this; attached you will find an archive called keys.zip

inside will be allow.reg and disallow.reg

double click and see if allow.reg allows you to run the application.

Upon completion, double click disallow.reg

Hi again gerryf,
I saved the file to My Documents, unzipped, went to the allow.reg and the following came up
REGISTRY EDITOR
ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO ADD THE INFORMATION IN C:\DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS\ADVENT\MYDOCUMENTS\KEYS\ALLOW.REG TO THE REGISTARY

I clicked yes and it said C:\docs and settings etc etc...has been successfully entered to the registary.

It did the same for disallow.reg

Where do I go from here please.
