Adding Content Advisor to Internet Explorer 11, No "Content Page" folder in Group policy editor

    Question

  • I want to use Content Advisor in Internet Explorer 11. I have found a few post that say to use Local Group Policy Editor. However "Content Page" folder does not exist. I have checked the following locations:

    Computer Configuration>Administrative Templates>Windows Components>Internet Explorer>Internet Control Panel>

    User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Internet Explorer -> Internet Control Panel ->

    Internet Control Panel has only two folders "security page" and "advanced page". The "Content Page" folder does not exist.

  • Hi,

    you did not mention your windows version.

    In Internet Options (win7/IE11)>Content tab, Content advisor has been replaced with Parental Controls.

  • I have windows 7 professional with IE 11.

    IE 9 has both parental control and content advisor

    IE 10, IE 11 only parental control.

    It can only be considered a replacement if it performs the function of the thing being replaced. In this case it is more accurate to say downgrade.

    I am looking to add about 10 websites to the whitelist and block all the others with a supervisor password, like it was possible to do this in Content advisor. I cannot do this with parental control, so I am looking for a way to put content advisor back on to IE 11 using Local Group Policy Editor.

    Please read the above the post.

  • Something not quite right with your inetres.admx?

    On my Win7+IE11 system, I can enable Content Advisor by using the GPO setting you mention (it's also mentioned in the comments of this blog post about IEM)
    http://www.grouppolicy.biz/2010/07/how-to-use-group-policy-to-allow-or-block-urls/

    I did a quick test of enabling/disabling Content advisor, and that part worked fine (I didn't do any Content Advisor setup of passwords, ratings, sites etc)

  • Hi,

    Based on your description, I would like to suggest you try to re-register the related mmc snap-in DLL to check the result:

    regsvr32 <snap-in DLL name>

    Administrative Templates and Scripts: gptext.dll

    For your reference:

    Some Group Policy areas are missing from the Group Policy Editor

    This article is also applied for Windows 7.

    Hope it helps.

  • Did you ever find a fix for this? I'm having the same issue, but I have Windows 10 Professional and I did install the feature update (1511).

  • Hi CarbonCT,

    The GPO settings found under Windows Settings>Internet Explorer Maintenance were depreciated in IE10.

    Please see the workarounds found with this web search http://www.bing.com/search?q=gpo+IE11+Internet+Explorer+Maintenance+removed+blog (there are quite a few).

  • in Windows 10, the old Content Advisor strings and \Content\ category within the ADMX/ADML GP templates, are removed. That would be why the \Content\ category is missing from the GPeditor.

    I've just checked on my Win10-1607, and the INETRES.ADMX/ADML files have had the references removed.

    (PS: it's not at all related to IEM. IEM is not a template-based control, IEM is embedded within a DLL, which is long gone, and never was in Win10)

    I just tried tinkering with the equivalent registry keys on my Win10-1607, and couldn't get CA to show up, but I didn't reboot)

    It may be, that CA is finally totally gone..
