This will remove the warning.

This setting can be imported to the default user settings during your MDT or SCCM Task Sequence as explained in http://larslohmann.blogspot.dk/2013/03/customize-settings-for-all-new-users-on.html.

  1. Nice article, but there is a typo:
    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet\Explorer\Main\NoProtectedModeBanner

    Should be:
    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\NoProtectedModeBanner

    Note the space instead of a backslash in "Internet Explorer"
