    IE7 installs, but flashes on for a moment, then turns off! This was the reason I got rid of it the first time I tried it. The new complete version of IE8 works good.

Install IE7 or if possible Mozilla Firefox 3.0, Mozilla Firefox is much stable, fast & secure than IE. You can also use Mozilla add-ons for more productivity.

How can active my system?


In some cases, say when you're building and testing a webpage locally (Local Machine Zone), you may still see the Information Bar when the web page executes any script, initiates a Pop-up windows, or a download. For testing purposes, one needs to follow any of these workarounds:

  • Rename the .HTM file to .HTA (Example.. Index.HTM to Index.HTA and test the file locally). HTA files have more privileges than the HTM files, can run active content on Local Machine by default.

    -or-

  • add the Mark Of The Web code such as <!-- saved from url=(0023)http://www.contoso.com/ --> to a Web page, where the (0023) value is the string length of your URL that follows it and Contoso is the name of your Web site.

The above is an extract from Local Machine Zone Lockdown - Developer Implications. See page for more information about the two workarounds above.
To totally disable the Local Machine Zone restriction (for running Active Content) (not recommended, though) for valid reasons, read below:
To allow any Web site to run scripts and ActiveX controls on your computer:
In Internet Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Internet Options. On the Advanced tab, scroll down to the Security section of the list. Select the Allow active content to run in files on My Computer check box, and then click OK.

lmzlock_disable.jpg
To accomplish this via the Registry, modify the following registry value:
HKCU \ Software \ Microsoft \ Internet Explorer \ Main \ FeatureControl \ FEATURE_LOCALMACHINE_LOCKDOWN
In the right-pane, create a new REG_DWORD named iexplore.exe and set it to 0
Values:
0 - Allows a Web page to run active content in your computer
1 - Disallows a Web page from running active content in your computer
To allow any CD to run scripts and ActiveX controls on your computer:
In Internet Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Internet Options. On the Advanced tab, scroll down to the Security section of the list. Select the Allow active content from CDs to run on My Computer check box, and then click OK.
