    Disabling Protected Mode via GPO?

    ned4spd8874

      Okay, this is getting so frustrating.  I finally got a good working AIP of 10.0.1, but I'm still struggling to disable that pesky Protected Mode.  That spash screen is confusing too many people.  I can't find an option using the Adobe Customization Wizard to disable it.  I did find code online to make a ADM for it though here: http://www.appdeploy.com/packages/detail.asp?id=1976 (in the notes section).

       

      I thought I had it working.  I imported it and was able to disable the spash screen through the new ADM menu.  But after I closed the window, I wanted to double check that I got it all right and now it's all blank!  I have the menu's, but no options to enable or disable.  WTF is going on here?  I'm ready to give up on this mess and roll back to version 9.  Please help!!!!

       

      Here is the code from that link to make it easier for some:
