I have just upgraded from IE6 to IE7 on PC with XP and SP2.
Everything works fine, except I always get the message that my security settings are at risk!
When I click on "fix it for me", the settings are not stored.
When I try to set the security settings to the default settiings then click OK, again the settings
are not stored.
This is very irritating and will cause me to go back to IE6, which is a bit annoying when my laptop uses IE7.
Can anyone help me to store my security settings, it seems so easy when you read the Help info!

Hello RonandSandra,

Lets check your settings:
To use Reset Internet Explorer Settings in Internet Explorer 7, follow these steps:

Click the Tools menu, and then click Internet Options.
On the Advanced tab, click Reset.
In the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, click Reset.
When IE7 finishes restoring the default settings, click Close, and then click okay two times.
Close IE7. The changes take effect the next time that you open your browser.

See How to use Reset Internet Explorer Settings (RIES)
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
