Title: Disable Online Security Toolbar
Post by: przekopj@hesp.net on September 25, 2013, 04:32:38 PM
Perhaps I'm blind, but is there a way to keep the online security toolbar from being installed? I can't seem to find a setting for this in the program properties. My district's tech director has asked me to turn off this toolbar. I personally don't feel that clicking the "Do Not Enable" button when IE is started for the first time is not a major inconvenience, but it appears as if this has caused enough of a problem for end users that I have been asked to stop the add in from running.

I can give you instructions for the Enterprise Admin Console:

Right Click Computer Catalog (Or the computer group you wish to change)
Scroll down and select "Browser Protections"
Uncheck the plugins you don't want to install.

Thank you for confirming where to look, but the enable web rep plugin is disabled and has been since the V8 update. I have pushed program updates to the computers, but for some reason the plugin keeps popping up. I thought that perhaps there was a second location that I could not find. I'll try creating a new client update push and see if that will take care of the issue.

After creating a new update push, only the machines that stubbornly refuse to update over the network still have the plugin.
