I am trying to find some settings in GPOs that explicitly say, "Block 3rd Party cookies" in IE. I am looking under policies>admin template>windows components>IE> IE control panel>Security page. Should I look elsewhere for these? I don't really see this under individual zones either. I could possibly do this just by configuring the default user profile's privacy settings but I would rather do this with a GPO. Has anyone does this?

You can set this under:

User Configuration\Windows Settings\Internet Explorer Maintenance\Security\Security Zones and Content Ratings

Excellent! I just have to click import, modify, and then setup the policy the way I want it to be. Much easier then trying to edit the default user. So many answers I saw out and about were talking about GPP registry settings, default user edit, etc. This is much cleaner. Thank you for your quick response. – Chadddada Apr 10 '12 at 16:21
That was another option using GPP and editing the registry setting there, but GPOs make life easy :) – RomeNYRR Apr 10 '12 at 16:22
Just noticed this states 2k3 only... I am looking to do this for 2008 servers. – Chadddada Apr 10 '12 at 17:31
