IE 7 Protected Mode Off issue
One quick question. How many times does one have to turn on Protected Mode?
I have to turn it on every time I close IE and reopen it.

I am double clicking on Protected Mode OFF and checking the box to enable it
and then clicking apply and okay. Yet when I close IE and then open it again
later there I am back at Protected Mode Off.

If your home page is a trusted site, the browser will open with Protected
Mode Off.

Re: IE 7 Protected Mode Off issue
Well that don't make much sense. Protected is protected, whether it's a
Trusted Site or not? Do I have to remove all the Trusted Sites to get IE to
protect? Still don't know if this overkill or underkill at this point.

Either you trust the site, which means you're dropping your protections, or
you want your protection on, which means that you don't trust the site.

You don't have to remove all trusted sites, you just have to remove from the
Trusted Sites any sites that you want to be kept in Protected Mode.

How does that not make sense?

If you trust someone, that means you are willing to forego the protections
you would normally have in place. If you want to be protected against
someone, that means you don't trust them.

[Oh, and you have to have UAC enabled in order for Protected Mode IE to be
on at all. There may be other restrictions of which I'm not aware.]

Alun.
