Windows 7: IE 9 isn't respecting Inprivate Filtering startup preferences

IE 9 isn't respecting Inprivate Filtering startup preferences

I had IE 8 set to start InPrivate Filtering automatically but IE 9 doesn't seem to respect this registry key.

Is anyone else having this problem?

IE9 InPrivate Filtering

Apparently Microsoft noticed people were using it as an adblock feature and decided to yank the auto-on function. :P

Hi DaemonFC, try the following registry hack:
Open regedit and go to to
HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Internet Explorer \ Safety \ PrivacIE
Create a new DWORD value named FilteringMode and set 1 as the data. This is the difference between IE8 and IE9 --> the name of the key FilteringMode (IE9) instead of StartMode (IE8).

I hope it is helpful to you, greetings.
