    Hi JTA; :)

    Click this link for Eric Howes Site HERE and scroll half way down the page "Securing the Internet Zone"

    Eric's Page is a great resource here's the link to the index page ... bookmark it for future referance ... theirs tons of info .... Main Index ... also check out IE Spyad for M$ IE HERE

    Hope that helps. ;)

    This should be covered in Eric's site, but I think that the Active X items are the most important ones to change.

    Go to Internet Options/Security/Internet, press 'default level', then OK.

    Now press "Custom Level."

    In the ActiveX section, set the first two options ("Download signed and unsigned ActiveX controls) to 'prompt', and 'Initialize and Script ActiveX controls not marked as safe" to 'disable'.

    Now you will be asked whether you want ActiveX objects to be executed and whether you want software to be installed.
    Sites that you know for sure are above suspicion can be moved to the Trusted Zone in Internet Option/security.
