Recommended Posts

Hello,

Is there a to disable/enable a BHO (Broswer Helper Object, Add-On, Toolbar) with Autoit in IE?

Lets use Shockwave as an example:

Of a BHO that I would like to disable but I'm not even sure if that is something that can be scripted.

Would this help you in any way ?

You can enable/disable BHOs by adding/removing a DWORD registry value called "Flags" with a value of 1 to this key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Ext\Settings\<BHO CLSID>

From http://stackoverflow.com/questions/857563/activate-ie-add-ons-from-an-bho

And / Or perhaps this:

// BHOs
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\explorer\Browser Helper Objects 
// IE toolbars
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar
// IE extensions
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Extensions

from http://stackoverflow.com/questions/413333/how-can-i-list-the-plugins-bhos-that-internet-explorer-uses-from-my-program

Edit: Assuming you know how to manipulate Registry entries from AutoIT3, lots of examples around and in helpfile.

I am just a hobby programmer, and nothing great to publish right now.
