IE Security Notice
brings about the very annoying "To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted this file from showing active content." message.
Incidentally, opening the same content in Firefox, which is, without a doubt, the more secure browser, causes no such message.
Do you mean that yellow bar at the top of the window.
Tools > Internet Options ... > Advanced
Scroll down to Security
Switch on: Allow active content to run in files on My Computer
You may need to do the same for CD's.
IE is warning you about running scripts locally.
I knew it was something right under my nose. My apologies for cluttering the group with trivial postings. I resist using IE as much as possible, and I suppose that includes learning anything about it.
No problem. Do learn about IE, it's still the major browser.
I'm sure there is some fix in the Script itself to avoid the block/error.
Do you get the error when opening the page locally or online?
As of Windows XP SP2, there is a new security feature that applies to local content. As mentioned above, there is a user preference to turn it off. Script statements that execute automatically appear to trigger the warning. Global statements, for example, and I think <BODY ONLOAD="..."> will cause it, too.
