    I have got this warning the last two days when I accessed a live streaming feed...I hadn't previously, seen this message before. I allowed, otherwise I couldn't view.

    Avoiding the obvious - why are you running IE 8 and why are you still running Windows XP ?

    I can't tell if it's just bad settings or this "DefenseWall" thing just being over protective. What site was the stream on?

    And yeah, if you're still sticking with WinXP for whatever reason, I wouldn't be using Internet Explorer as your main browser. Use Firefox instead.

    The OP doesn't have to use Firefox - that's a Browser wars like recommendation but a more current version of IE should be used.

    IE8 is the highest version that you can use on XP.

    It's so old, I've forgotten IE 8 was no longer supported, as is Windows XP.
