Run Once Problem with IE

Don’t you hate it when after you’ve upgraded to the latest version of IE, the very first time you open IE again it prompts you to run the wizard to make all the default settings for things like your default search engine etc. Well here’s a way to get rid of this:

You’ll have to edit the registry to make these changes:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
“RunOnceComplete”=dword:00000001
“RunOnceHasShown”=dword:00000001

Pasted from

To make the change from a cmd prompt:
REG ADD “HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main” /V “RunOnceComplete” /T REG_DWORD /D 1 /F
REG ADD “HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main” /V “RunOnceHasShown” /T REG_DWORD /D 1 /F
