[Release] Dougiefresh's IE7 Tweaks Add-On v1.0

Post by dougiefresh » Mon Dec 17, 2007 9:42 am

This add-on contains the settings I use to tweak Internet Explorer 7 for my use, which I found under RegTweaks Collection v0.4. It also installs the Internet Explorer 5 Web Accessories onto the system. In addition, it adds the Domain Block List to block some pornographic domains. It can installed without integrating into XP source.

IE Tweaks in General:
- Adds Government and Military to auto url searches
- Keeps Dial-Up Connection active during user-switch
- Disallow spying by web-sites by putting "About:" sites in Restricted
- Changes default search engine to Yahoo
- Adds MSKB, AV, GGL, MSN and FM search keywords to IE.
- Disable FTP folder view and use passive FTP
- Disable download complete notification and allow IE window reuse
- Disallow spying by web-sites by putting "About:" sites in Restricted

IE7-specific Tweaks:
- Remove IE7 First Run Dialogs and Tabs welcome
- Force IE7 Menu Bar to be displayed above address bar
- Phishing Filter enabled by default
- Adds all supported search scopes for IE7 (Picture)
- Changes default search scope to Yahoo and IE7 Start Page to Yahoo.
- Changes IE7 Tabbed Browsing behavior.

NOTE: While I am certain that settings will be applied with IE7 integrated, I am not sure whether they will be if IE7 is installed after windows setup is complete. Just a word of warning....

Also added the Yahoo toolbar to my setup. Didn't mind the search being changed but didn't really want the toolbar too!

This add-on does not add or install the Yahoo toolbar. These registry tweaks only change the IE homepage and the default search scope to Yahoo. I've applied these to my system at home and have never seen the Yahoo toolbar installed because of this add-on. Frankly, I can't stand toolbar's, especially those that are installed without consent of the user/owner!

EDIT: A thought just occurred to me.... maybe you're confusing the "search scope" with "toolbar". Ivel updated the first post with an image to show what I'm talking about.

You are of course absolutely right - what I took to be the toolbar is the Yahoo logo at the beginning of the address bar. My apologies for the earlier post.
At least with your addon I can get the address bar where it belongs.
