Here’s the truth:
Without PolicyPak Application Manager and our included Pak for Internet Explorer, you are not in control of Internet Explorer.
If you’re still trying to figure out what do now that Internet Explorer Maintenance (IEM) has been deprecated, this is your answer. If you need to manage it, we bring a true “one stop shop” to managing ALL areas and settings of Internet Explorer (All Versions).

Here’s a list of very short videos (1-3 minutes each) which can show you how PolicyPak is able to manage each of these challenges and truly manage all of Internet Explorer (all desktop versions, all operating systems.)
Bonus time: once you’re using PolicyPak to manage Internet Explorer, you’ll also get to manage all your other enterprise desktop applications the same way: Flash, WinZip, Firefox, and any custom applications you have. They’re 100% included – absolutely free. It’s all included when you’re a PolicyPak Professional customer. PolicyPak was designed by Group Policy MVP Jeremy Moskowitz – who “wrote the book” on Group Policy, runs GPanswers.com, and lives and breathes Group Policy and enterprise software deployments and desktop lockdown.
