SYMPTOMS

In an Active Directory domain environment, you configure the Internet Explorer Maintenance Group Policy settings so that the Content Advisor restrictions are rolled out to the domain. You do this to manage Web sites and to prevent users from viewing certain Internet content.

However, on a client computer that has Windows Internet Explorer 7 installed, these Group Policy settings do not work. Even if these Group Policy settings have been downloaded to the client computer, the Content Advisor is not enabled, and it is not configured in compliance with the Group Policy settings.

Note This problem does not occur on a client computer that has Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 installed.
