Prevent automatic discovery of feeds and Web Slices

This policy setting prevents users from having Internet Explorer automatically discover whether a feed or Web Slice is available for an associated webpage. If you enable this policy setting the user does not receive a notification on the toolbar that a feed or Web Slice is available. If you disable or do not configure this policy setting the user receives a notification when a feed or Web Slice is available and can click the feed discovery button.
