Does anyone know the registry location for the internet user authentication->logon section within windows?

Start->Control Panel->Internet Options

Then second tab over to "Security" there is a button "Custom Level" if you click that button and scroll all the way down you see this:

How can I find the registry setting for this area?

Here it is

  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones

There are sub-keys under that for each zone, they will hold all of the security settings as a dword, there is a list on the Microsoft website somewhere of what dword is what (I will post it when I find it)

Hope that helps.
