Process List

Internet Explorer places restrictions on each Web page it opens. The restrictions are dependent upon the location of the Web page (Internet Intranet Local Machine zone and so on). Web pages on the local computer have the fewest security restrictions and reside in the Local Machine zone making the Local Machine security zone a prime target for malicious users. Zone Elevation also disables JavaScript navigation if there is no security context. This policy setting allows administrators to define applications for which they want this security feature to be prevented or allowed. If you enable this policy setting and enter a Value of 1 elevation to more privileged zones can be prevented. If you enter a Value of 0 elevation to any zone is allowed. The Value Name is the name of the executable. If a Value Name is empty or the Value is not 0 or 1 the policy setting is ignored. Do not enter the Internet Explorer processes in this list: use the related Internet Explorer Processes policy to enable or disable IE processes. If the All Processes policy setting is enabled the processes configured in this box take precedence over that setting. If you disable or do not configure this policy setting the security feature is allowed.
