Has anyone had any trouble with the Internet Explorer blocker tool kit not working?  We are having all kinds of issues.  the first one is that Windows Updates is completely ignoring the Registry Key that the blocker puts in.  I Apply it do an update and still get IE 10.  Second we have workstations where IE 10 was installed, Remove it, Apply the blocker and do an update and it comes right back.. it is extremely frustrating.

It is working for me. How are you deploying it? I am manually sending out the registry change via a Kace script...

  • I am pushing it out two ways:
    1. For workstations that are already in production, I have applied the GPO that comes with the tool kit.
    2. For newly imaged workstations I have a task that runs under MDT. It is the very first line item in "State Restore" after "Recover from Domain" this is a task that runs the Blocker.cmd /B and then it restarts the workstation (restart may not be needed, but why take chances.)

    On Item two, I verified that the registry keys to block IE 10 are there under HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Setup\... IE10 and do not install (writing this from memory, so i know its not accurate) was present, and set to block. I ran windows update and low and behold there it is ready to install.
    • I had issues with running the MS supplied .cmd over the network but when I manually pushed the registry key I had it working. But if you are verifying the correct key and value is present but the update is still showing up then I'm not sure what the problem is...wish I had something better to offer...

      [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Setup\10.0]
