Internet Explorer / IE >> Remove that obnoxious security warning yellow bar?

I too have suddenly found that while I'm using IE7/XPProSP2, that when I surf
the yellow bar with it's security warning is no longer appearing as I
followed this advice froma search here...

>To modify this policy, run gpedit.msc and change the

I did that and all is well -- except when I try to open up a html page from
my own computer to look at it in IE, I now get that same obnoxious warning.

How do I turn that off on my own Computer???

Internet Explorer / IE >> Remove that obnoxious security warning yellow bar? Hi,
You're encountering the "local machine zone lockdown" feature of [XP] SP2.
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb457150.aspx#EHAA

There are three workarounds for this:
1. Give each page the "Mark of the Web"
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms537628.aspx
2. Rename each .HTM file to .HTA while it's on your hard drive, being
edited. HTA
files aren't as restricted.
3. Internet Options> Advanced> Security> check "Allow active content to run
in files on My Computer ."
You will, of course, be giving up some of the enhanced security of the XP
SP2 update.

Hope this helps,

Internet Explorer / IE >> Remove that obnoxious security warning yellow bar? Thanks Don and Alan...

Yup, the simple turn off in Advanced worked fine...didn't know about that one.

One more collateral question -- I sometimes feel a bit "foolish" asking such
questions here...is there an URL you could post here where someone (maybe
even an XP MVP type) has like tons of FAQs on just such issues with
solutions too?

Internet Explorer / IE >> Remove that obnoxious security warning yellow bar? Hi Jim,
The "local machine zone lockdown" would have been difficult to research
without having heard that term.

The classic IE site is Sandi Hardmeier's at http://inetexplorer.mvps.org/

Ramesh Srinivasan has information on IE, XP and Vista at
http://windowsxp.mvps.org/
IE FAQ at http://windowsxp.mvps.org/IEFAQ.htm

Google groups is a terrific resource.
http://groups.google.com/group/microsoft.public.internetexplorer.general/topics?hl=en
takes you to this newsgroup
http://groups.google.com/advanced_search allows customized searches
http://groups.google.com/groups/dir?sel=33606727&expand=1 is the index of
all MS public newsgroups carried/archived by google.

To learn about hardware, software or other tech issues, reading newsgroups
one Q&A at a time, if the topic looks interesting, is a great way to learn.

By the way, you accessed this newsgroup through the web interface. You
should setup Outlook Express to read newsgroups.

This may get you started:
