Help on 2 registry tweaks (local activex + IE processes)

3 posts in this topic

I need a confirmation for these 2 tweaks before adding them to my unattended WinXp SP3 cd.

I am very dubious, are they correct or could they give security or system issues?

1- I can't use activex content in html files saved on my pc\cd unless I do these things:

A- put this line in the html pages: <!-- saved from url=(0015)about:localhost -->

B- Modify these registry keys:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_LOCALMACHINE_LOCKDOWN]

"iexplore.exe"="DWORD:0"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_LOCALMACHINE_LOCKDOWN\Settings]

"LOCALMACHINE_CD_UNLOCK"="DWORD:1"

C- add localhost to the "Local Internet" security zone

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains\localhost]

"Default"="DWORD:1"

Does another method exist otherwise?

2- is separating iexplorer in various processes good? Can this cause instability or memory issues?

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced]

"SeparateProcess"="DWORD:1"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\3]

"2201"="DWORD:0"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains\localhost]

"Default"="DWORD:1"

id assume this would be safe, its just registry entries, if it doesnt work undo it, test on a virtual machine 1st

this is safe, ive used it in the past, worked fine for me when i used it

BUT!!!!! why use IE? so much more flexibility with other browsers , safer aswell :hello:

Hey I'm not worried about the process of writing the registry. I was thinking about the method and content!

1: Is it ok to add localhost to the "Local Internet" security zone or could this cause security breach? Is this strange method the only way to fix the problem?

2: ok then, anyway I have Firefox too ;)

p.s: ops this is about another thing, I'll remove it: Zones\3 "2201"="DWORD:0"
