Phishing check

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by Trevor Lawrence, Dec 27, 2007.

  1. I recently installed IE7 on my wife's laptop and she complains it is running
    extra slow.

    Apparently each site is checked by a phishing filter.

    Can this be turned off?

    You can turn it off in the Tools menu, if you have another phishing
    solution, but try this first:

    "The computer may respond very slowly as the Phishing Filter evaluates
    Web page contents in Internet Explorer 7"

    [If the machine's fully patched at Windows Update, 928089 is already
    installed.]

    Are you running a security application that also includes Anti-Phishing
    component (e.g. Norton or McAfee)?

  5. All that is running is Windows Defender and AVG Free Edition 7.5

    It is my wife's laptop and when she is around, she doesn't like anyone doing
    maintainance. She has gone out now for a few hours so I thought I would
    check the Updates, and just to annoy me, the computer can't connect to
    Windows Update - I don't know why, so I guess I give up on updates. Let's
    hope that it doesn't crash
