Windows 7: Can a script be written to change all IE settings across a network?

Can a script be written to change all IE settings across a network?

Hello, we are running a 2012 server. We are on a domain. We recently received notification that advanced settings in IE need to be updated specifically in order to use their website. And something to do with a SSL. Is there a way to change all IE settings on all of the computers connected to our network/domain so that I do not have to manually go to 300 computers? I haven't ever written a script but I am sure if explained, I could do so. There just has to be a way to mass change settings without physically going to each and every machine, right?

Or would this be along the lines of a GPO? Again, not something that I am familiar with so any information would be great!

Hi,
I have no idea but the settings in question are posted here,
IE 11 'This page can't be displayed... Turn on TLS 1.0...'

Sounds like your using ie11 and windows updates should take care of disabling ssl's on each machine for you
Cheers.

Group Policy was made for this kind of thing. Otherwise this is likely going to be difficult, script or no script.

Someone in your organization should be familiar with this.

Here is what I am trying to accomplish and just not sure if possible with GPO.


Instructions
To configure Internet Explorer HTTPS security settings:
1. Launch Internet Explorer
2. Navigate to
Tools > Internet Options. The Internet Options window appears. The General tab is displayed.
3. Click the
Advanced tab. 3 | P a g e
4. Scroll down to the end of the Settings list. Settings for SSL & TLS are listed here.
5. Select
Use TLS 1.0, Use TLS 1.1 and Use TLS 1.2 to enable all instances of TLS. Leave Use SSL 2.0 and Use SSL 3.0 selected, do not deselect the SSL settings. CareLogic will use TLS rather than SSL once TLS is enabled.
6. Click
OK. The Internet Explorer Internet Options window closes and the Security Certificate settings are saved.

What application/s need to use ssl of any type ?
All tsl's should be activated by default
You also have not confirmed which version of ie your using unless I missed it ?
Cheers.

Sorry, IE 8,9,10 &11. This needs to be configured this way for an electronic health record that can only be accessed by using IE. I just do not want to have to manually configure 200+ computers if a GPO can push this out to all users running those versions of IE.

Does anyone know, or could point me in the direction of somewhere that can answer this? Many computers do NOT have the things checked that should be checked. There is no way to push change out to all computers running IE?

Dell Computers, Round Rock TX, has had for years, from DOS/Windows 3.1 - Windows 7 & beyond, one of the finest, most thorough push-technologies [for updating umpteen computers] that I've known about. You will probably have to pay something for a Dell tech to give you knowledge-wise what you need to: know, purchase, implement, and maintain your own push-technology. From line-items to whole net-station downloads...
