    Per my last post, it was in regard to the IE7 ADM template. The configuration node where they are applicable is:

    Computer/User Configuration>Administrative Templates>Windows Components>Internet Explorer>Internet Explorer Control Panel>Security Page> any zone

    Good to see the ADM out, but it has incorrect names and missing policies:

    Name in template:

    Disable WinFX Runtime Components Setup

    Name in UI (template should be renamed to reflect this):

    Enable .Net Framework setup

    Name in template:

    Loose or un-compiled XAML files

    Name in UI (template should be renamed to reflect this):

    Loose XAML

    Namein template:

    Web Browser Applications

    Name in UI (template should be renamed to reflect this):

    XAML browser applications

    Name in template:

    XPS files

    Name in UI (template should be renamed to reflect this):

    XPS documents

    In addition to the policy name itself, each description needs to be updated accordingly as well.

    Missing policies:

    – Allow previously unused ActiveX controls to run without prompt

    – Allow scripting of Internet Explorer Web browser control

    – Allow websites to oen windows without address or status bars

    – Include local directory path when uploading files to a server

    – Launching application and unsafe files

    – Use Phishing filter

    – Allow websites to prompt for information using the scripted windows
