    secure nonsecure box (IE 7.05)

    (Edited by HansV to make URL clickable - see <!help=19>Help 19<!/help>)

    when I go to some websites, I get a windows pop up box that says:
    "This page contains both secure and nonsecure items. Do you want to display the nonsecured items".
    How do I disable this?
    I asked this question in '04 with IE6 and the answer was to change the security settings under "miscelaneous", but in IE7 I can't find that option. Furthermore, I went to microsoft and their answer was here:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/925014
    But that didn't make any sense to me.
    can anyone help?

    The MSKB article is intended for web developers, not for end users.

    You can get rid of the message, but it lowers security:
    - Select Tools, Internet Options...
    - Activate the Security tab.
    - Click on Internet in the 'Select a Web content zone' box.
    - Click Custom Level.
    - Scroll down to 'Display mixed content' (under Miscellaneous)
    - Set the option to Enable instead of Prompt.
    - OK your way out.

    Thanks,
    One follow up question:
    Can you think of an example, after I enable displaying mixed content, I would be at higher risk?

    If your PC is adequately protected (firewall, anti-virus, anti-spyware), I don't really think the risk is serious.

    Rick,
    I thought that when the pop up shows, it also asks "don't show this again", with a box to check if you don't want it anymore?

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!
