Turn off ActiveX opt-in prompt

This policy setting allows you to turn off the ActiveX opt-in prompt. The ActiveX opt-in prevents Web sites from loading any COM object without prior approval. If a page attempts to load a COM object that Internet Explorer has not used before, an Information bar will appear asking the user for approval.

If you enable this policy setting, the ActiveX opt-in prompt will not appear. Internet Explorer does not ask the user for permission to load a control, and will load the ActiveX if it passes all other internal security checks.

If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, the ActiveX opt-In prompt will appear.


Supported on: At least Internet Explorer 8.0
