I want to be able to block the option for users to "delete browser history" in IE7
I would prefer a script for this since I'll have to do it 86 times. lol thanks in advance.

to gooogle


Just wondering why would you want to remove that?

Edit: I just looked in the Group Policy list and found a way to disable that feature.
The key is HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel
Set a DWORD value named DisableDeleteBrowsingHistory to 1 in that.
You can also set that under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE to disable it for all users.

the reason is so people will stop deleteing their browser history and I can see it if I need to. lol

do i need to disable both of those? or just the second one?

That registry key is just for IE, by the way.

Could have sworn there's already a domain GPO for that. Leaving for the day though and no time to look.
