  • Hi Tommy,

    For the first issue,there is a group policy "Prevent running first run ziard" in this path :
    Administrative Templates>Windows Components>Internet Explorer
    We also can do this by adding a registry key "DisableFirstRunCustomize"(Dword) and set its value to 1  in this path :
    HKEY_CURRENT_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main

    For the second issue ,there is a gp related to this "Install new versions of Internet Explorer automatically".Here is the path :Administrative Templates>Windows Components>Internet Explorer
    We also can do this through the registry .Here is a link for reference:
