|Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, SP-1, no other updates|
Internet Explorer 8 32-bit (came with Windows 7)
When I am not connected to the Internet or any network, and I
open a web page that I wrote by hand with HTML that is probably
all HTML 3.2 or even earlier (that is, *really* basic) and stored
on my hard drive, an information bar pops up that says:
> To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted
> this webpage from running scripts or activeX controls that
> could access your computer. Click here for options...
I have not yet clicked "Allow blocked content" to find out what
There are no scripts on the web page (although the word
"description" does occur several times in the text, and "script"
is embedded in it). There is only one "style" tag, (although the
word "style" occurs numerous times in the text). It specifies
the font family. All the links to images are to images on the
hard drive. (Although I swiped the images from websites on
the Internet so I don't know what else they might contain in
addition to the visible images.)
I know it is used. As far as I know, ActiveX is totally disabled.
All add-ons are either deleted or disabled, and I never installed
any that were not included with IE.
Why am I getting this information bar???
Why doesn't IE tell me more specifically what is being blocked
so that I can have a clue as to whether I want to allow it???
