Pushing preferences via ADM filesI agree, if they were following the rules, you 
should be able to opt-out. The only contact info on their site is via phone or 
support ticket. I did change the e-mail address in my profile to 
abuse@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Hopefully, that will stop the spam.

  Since they're now part of MS, you should be able to "opt-out", somewhere :). 
I would just send them an email and ask to be removed.

  A warning to all. Nothing is absolutely free, including this PolicyMaker 
utility. To obtain this utility you have to provide an e-mail address. When you 
do that you'll start getting SPAM from them with no mechanism to opt-out from 
their mailing list. I made this mistake, now I'm getting SPAM.

    Hi Robert,

     

    Yep. we all give up on Binary Keys. Microsoft doesn't support them under 
ADM Templates. 

     

    PolicyMaker has a free utility that allows you to add registry keys 
directly via Group Policies 
http://www.desktopstandard.com/PolicyMakerRegistryExtension.aspx

     

    The one downside is that it runs as an additional Group Policy Extension, 
so you have to install it on all machines. which is a lot of work for a couple 
of  measly registry keys

    All, 
    OK, I give up.  Anyone know of a way to push a registry entry via GPO/ADM 
looking something like this:? 

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar\WebBrowser] 
    
"{01E04581-4EEE-11D0-BFE9-00AA005B4383}"=hex:81,45,e0,01,ee,4e,d0,11,bf,e9,00,\ 
      aa,00,5b,43,83,10,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,01,e0,32,f4,01,00,00,00 
    
"{0E5CBF21-D15F-11D0-8301-00AA005B4383}"=hex:21,bf,5c,0e,5f,d1,d0,11,83,01,00,\ 
      
aa,00,5b,43,83,22,00,1c,00,00,00,00,00,06,00,00,00,01,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,\ 
      00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00 

    I've downloaded Alan's tool, will gladly pay the $50 if it will do 
something like this, but it didn't allow me to put these binary strings.

    These, btw, are prefernce settings to remove the AddressBar from IE6.  I 
tried using a policy called NoAddressBar = 1, but it was not consistent, 
perhaps conflicting with other GPO settings we have.  So I used REGMON to 
capture which registry entry was being modified when I turned off/on the 
Address Bar (View/toolbars/AddressBar).  Now I just have to figure out a way to 
send this via GPO.

    Any and all ideas would be very much appreciated.
