UAG ActiveX issues on IE10
I saw something today that I had not encountered before. I had a user connecting to my UAG setup, but it seemed like the UAG client would install when running as administrator, but would not run.
After running a remote session, I spotted that there was an extra icon that I had not seen before on the IE10 address bar:
It turns out this is an ActiveX filter built into Internet Explorer. Although with it running, the UAG components can not execute, meaning only web applications will run.
This feature can be disable by going to the cog icon, clicking on "Safety" and then unchecking "ActiveX Filtering"
