Remove Windows Browser Choice – Jocha

I’ve recently stumbled upon the “Browser Choice”-problem.
We do not want this patch deployed on our clients, so what can we do?

Add a reg key to the registry on your client machines. Only client machines are affected by this not server operating systems so there is no need to apply this to them.

If you want more information about the legal reasons behind this patch read this

The registry key that we want to add should have the following properties
Registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\BrowserChoice
Value Name: Enabled
Value Type: DWORD
Possible Values:

    0 Do not display browser choice update
    1 Display browser choice update

reg add HKLM\Software\BrowserChoice /v Enable /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

Add the line above to a batch-file and distribute it to your clients with SCCM.
