I believe you can do a GPO though to silently accept the change

This thread shows the solution for GPO

thats my question

how do I do it? When I launch IE and look at my add-ons, the folder that symantec references houses a DLL file. I cannot find anywhere in GP where I would allow a specific add-on.

If someone knows where that object is, I think I should be able to apply and test it.

Did you see the thread I post above which I think contains what you need

USER CONFIG/POLICIES/ADMIN TEMPLATES/WINDOWS COMPONENTS/INTERNET EXPLORER/SECURITY FEATURES/ADDON MANAGEMENT

I'm not a GPO expert by any means but is that what you're looking for?
