    The combination of Vista and IE7 have conspired to keep me from sites that
    even the security monitors list as not dangerous or infected or anything
    else. By allowing/enabling anything with Active X in the line and downloading
    Shockwave (for a game), I got things working for one day. The next day, I was
    back to being shut out. I need the kind of help and explanation you would
    give to your mother--but don't tell me to give up the computer. Sites blocked
    include Yahoo Mail and athletic sites with 'cstv' in the address. I've tried
    putting both in allowed sites list; there is nothing in restricted sites
    list. I've put my security at barely existent. My laptop, running off a
    wireless router, has XP and who knows which IE. It opens everything I want
    opened. Any suggestions that I'll be able to follow?

  2. Launch Internet Explorer and from the Toolbar select:
    Tools > Internet Options > Security.
    Uncheck "Enable Protected Mode" and click on
    "Reset all zones to default level" and click Apply.
    Go back and place a check next to "Enable Protected Mode"
    and click OK, then relaunch Internet Explorer.
