Disabling Internet Explorer Support

Internet Explorer, Microsoft’s default browser, happens to be one of the most widely used web browsers available these days. The browser is known for its advanced features and functions that assure an enhanced browsing experience to its users. If you are using a version 6 of the Internet Explorer browser, then you need to know that the support functions for the browser running on Microsoft’s Windows XP operating system are found in the Internet Options menu that is listed in the upper menu bar of the browser window.
Now, in case you would like to limit the access of a user, you can easily disable this menu by using the Windows Registry. In order to do this, you need to use the typical keys found in the registry. If you are unable to find the necessary keys, you need to add them separately.
According to our Internet Explorer support team, you can do this very easily and takes only a few minutes. Given below are some simple instructions that will help you in doing this.
  • The first set of action is to navigate to the Windows “Start” menu seen on the left hand side of your desktop screen and click the option “Run.” On to the field that appears, key in “regedit” and thereafter click the “Ok” button. This will make way to the Windows Registry Editor.
  • Now you need to click the sign “+” that is seen next to “HKEY_CURRENT_USER.” This will open up the respective folders. Continue doing this action for “Software,” “Policies,” “Microsoft” and then "Internet Explorer.” If you are not able to locate any folder after this set of action, then right click on “Microsoft” and pick “Key.” There, enter “Internet Explorer,” thereafter hit the “Enter” button. 
  • If the “Restrictions” key is available, highlight it. Also, highlight the option that is labeled as “New.” Next click the option for “DWORD” and on to the “New Value” box that appears, enter “NoBrowserOption.” Thereafter click the “OK” button to save the modifications that you have made. 
  • Next, right click on the “NoBrowserOption” and click the option “Properties.” Move the mouse cursor towards the text box “Value Data” and enter a “1.” For the changes to take effect, click the “OK” button.
  • Last step is to select the option “File” from the drop down menu that is available and click the “Exit” button. Finally restart your machine to make these changes to take effect on the Windows Registry.
Well, that is it! By now, you must have successfully disabled the Internet Explorer 6 support feature. If, in an unlikely situation, any issue still persists, please do get in touch with our Internet Explorer support team for further assistance on this issue.
