    Does anyone know how I can disable an add-on from Internet Explorer?
    When I try it says this add-on is being controlled by my administrator, although there are no logons or passwords, accounts, groups etc set on this PC.

    Thanks, I checked the registry and the restrictions folder doesn't exist for current user or local machine.
    Also the 'do not allow users to disable add-ons' policy is not configured in group policy.
    The add-on itself has a registry entry set to a value of 8, which I changed to 0 but this made no difference so I changed it back again.
    Would removing the registry entry for this add-on altogether cause any other problems?
