Restoring Security Levels (IE)


Internet Explorer has many security features to help protect your computer when you are browsing the Internet. However, configuring the settings incorrectly may prevent certain web pages from displaying on your computer. Support Data Inc. only supports the default configuration of Internet Explorer, and the process below describes how to restore Internet Explorer to the defaults that were set at the time of software installation.

If you need additional support for configuring Internet Explorer in a "non-default" setup, you will need to contact Microsoft directly for support.

Resetting IE's Security Levels

1. Double left-click the Internet Explorer icon on the desktop to open IE.

2. Left-click the Tools in the menu bar at the top of the IE box.

3. Left-click the Security tab at the top of the Internet Options box. Left-click each of the icons in the Select a Web content zone to specify its security settings box, and then left-click the Default Level button near the bottom of the Internet Options box to restore each setting to its default levels. See the graphic below, which has the areas to click circled:
