Hi All,

I am trying to change a registry value (Windows XP, SP3) but it keeps resetting itself after I :-
1. log off / logon
2. reboot.

The registry key is :
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\3\CurrentLevel


The value that appears when I first log on is Value Data = 0;
I change it to be 11000;

When I reboot it reverts back to 0.

Does anyone know how to fix this, so my registry change is retained after reboot?
Thanks.

Hi,

It sets the security value for a zone in IE, in this case the "Internet" zone.
i.e IE8...Tools...Internet Options...Security...Internet...Security Level for this zone.

e.g 11000 is equivalent to Medium level.


When I log on it's at custom level (which in the registry is equivalent to 0).
I change the registry level to something other than 0, but when I restart the computer, its gone back to 0 (and the display in the Security tab is custom).

Cheers.

So you keep resetting it in IE, and it keeps resetting itself? Sounds like a bug in the program.
