Stats: Windows XP Home SP2, IE 6 (only used for Windows Updates and extremely occasional Office Updates), Firefox 220.127.116.11 for all regular browsing, OE for email.
I'm setting up a new laptop and want to tweak IE Internet Option settings to make it more secure. I was wondering about the setting under the Advanced Tab that reads:Enable third party browser extensions (requires restart)
Right now, it is checked. 1.
Is it better to have this checked or unchecked in my case?2.
Why does it require a restart? 3.
Is there anything "unsafe/unsecure" about having it either checked or unchecked?4.
Any other opinions on what to tweak in regards to security on IE?
Thanks for the help!
