    Temporary disabling all IE's content security blocking

    I came to some trouble installing CorelDraw software which apparently uses for it's setup launcher web active container performed by IE core. If I launch setup, the setup windows is evidently noninitialized showing the top warning band about active content being blocked for security reasons. Even allowing active content by selecting from the top bar menu doesn't make the setup continue. So now I'd need to temporarily bypass all IE's security checks, ie. allow everything. What I already did was browsing the security tab in IE options and allowing most of the choices in branches ActiveX controls and plugin modules + Scripting (Local Intranet). On Advanced tab I have checked in Security branch Allow execution of active content from CD discs on this computer + Allow execution of active content from files on this computer. Nothing of these affecting the installer to run (ie. I still see then active content blocking bar). Any help leading to unblocking the launcher will be welcome.

    The error description "To help protect your security..." led me to an article describing a registry key called FEATURE_LOCALMACHINE_LOCKDOWN in 'HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl'. If you create a REG_SZ value here named '*' with a value of '0' (zero). The update installer runs smoothly (at least it did on my system).
