Is the Internet Explorer list of restricted sites the same one I am using to place the IP numbers and/or URLs of unwanted sites in? The place I use in my IE.6.0 / SP2 browser can he found at; Tools -> Internet Options -> Privacy -> Sites.

In there it says, "Per site privacy actions. You can specify which websites are always or never allowed to use cookies, regardless of their privacy policy".

I believe the sites I enter here are unable to use ActiveX or Javascript or anything else in my computer, yet I am still able to view those sites. Correct? But other, friendly sites are still able to interact normally with me? And this is my "List of restricted sites?

The information found below should explain the uses of various IE settings:

Hi John, I read in both places and I have a couple of questions. I have been placing unwanted sites, (URLs and/or IP address) into the "Per Site Privacy Actions" section which I get to via, Options -> Privacy -> Sites.

I see now when I go to the Restricted Zone, Options -> Security -> Restricted, there is a totally different list of entries. I added one while I was there and although I couldn't find it in the list later, I did get a pop-up from MSAS telling me it was blocking that entry now.

Have I done any harm by placing unwanted websites in the "Per Site Privacy Settings" list? I will now begin to add them into the Restricted Zone instead. BTW, I do have SpywareBlaster.

I read on how to set the Restricted Zone and looked at my settings under Custom Level. It suggests we set all to "Disable" but some are as follows...

Font Download... Prompt
Display Mixed Content... Prompt
Software Channel Permissions... High safety
Submit non-encrypted form data... Prompt
Login prompt and Popup Blocker are fine.

I tested my setup with the WSHOM.OSX Exploit Test Page and passed. Do I need to disable any of the above settings?

Thanks for steering me in the right direction. When I have this settled I will have some questions on my HOSTS File, and on IE-Spyad. :thumbsup:

I no longer use IE, so I really cannot advise you with any degree of certainty; however, having some browser actions set to "prompt" is perfectly acceptable.

John

That's okay John, the links you gave me have pointed me in the right direction. I appreciate that.
