You can change your Internet Explorer security settings in two places. Both open the same menu program. You can start Internet Explorer and, from the menu bar, pick Tools, then Internet Options.
Alternatively, you can click on Start, Control Panel, “Network and Internet Connections,” and Internet Options.
Either way, you get this user dialog box:
Select the Security tab. Then, click on the globe labeled Internet, and then click on the button “Custom Level…”
A new, smaller window labeled Security Settings will open.
Scroll to the bottom of the list of settings.
Scroll up a few entries (4 in my case) to “Scripting – Active Scripting”
Click on the radio button labeled “Prompt”
Click the OK button at the bottom of the dialog window
Now, you will be back to the Internet Options dialog box. Click OK, and you will be done.
Try Firefox. You will be a lot happier and have a lot less security worries.
