We are having trouble deploying changes to IE7 for controlling the
active-x components that the browser manages.  We have a couple that we
need to disable by default, and as such would like to deploy via group
policy.  However attempts at trying to deploy these changes from the
server don't seem to land on the machines they are directed at.  Even
after several attempts at GPUPDATE, the policy changes don't appear in
the RSOP listing or indeed in the group policy changes / under tools.


Any ideas, on how to force deployment of these browser settings?


Any help welcomed.
