    ...for a single user behind a router.

    I ask because, while I don't have anything in this zone, judging from the default settings if something did get in there it has all priveledges.

    Will I regret checking https checkbox and unchecking the three included types and placing high restictions?

    Who is this group designed for? People sharing a connection?

    Hi HandsOff, ;)

    Intranet - is for an internal Network webpages.

    For an example: You work for Bell Canada ... @ work, You would be able to access their local intranet pages ... ie. Employee pages, company news, contact info, guidelines for Internet usage, etc. The pages are stored on the company's server locally ... are trusted, and are known to be safe ... hence the low level security. You can usually also access those web pages outside of the network with a logon & passcode.

    Although, I don't use IE, except for M$ updates ... I do have security settings for all zones ... Maxed. (it's not a problem at all)

    HTH, ;)
