Hi,

To prevent users enabling or disabling the Internet Explorer add-ons using the add-on manager, try this:
Open Registry Editor and navigate to the following keys:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Policies \ Microsoft \ Internet Explorer \ Restrictions

-and-

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Policies \ Microsoft \ Internet Explorer \ Restrictions
In the right-pane, Create a new REG_DWORD named NoExtensionManagement
Set it's value and set it to 1
Close Registry Editor

NOTE: To relax the restriction, change the value back to 0

Using the Group Policy Editor - Windows XP Professional
Click Start, Run and type GPEDIT.MSC
Navigate to this path:

Computer Configuration | Administrative Templates | Windows Components | Internet Explorer
Double-click Do not allow users to enable or disable add-ons.
Set it to Enabled

To enable the restriction for the current user profile

User Configuration | Administrative Templates | Windows Components | Internet Explorer
Double-click Do not allow users to enable or disable add-ons
Set it to Enabled

More Information about this policy (Explain tab)

If you enable this policy setting, users cannot enable or disable add-ons through Add-On Manager. The only exception occurs if an add-on has been specifically entered into the 'Add-On List' policy setting in such a way as to allow users to continue to manage the add-on. In this case, the user can still manage the add-on through the Add-On Manager. If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, the appropriate controls in the Add-On Manager will be available to the user.
