|IE7 ActiveX prompt on local files |
I can't figure out how to treat "C:" as a "trusted site"!
I test locally. I don't want to disable security altogether! I'd rather not have to click "run offline" or click "allow active content" often!
The Help files, of course, say, "Contact your Network Administrator." (That's me.)
I've tried to set the "local intranet" as a trusted "zone". I can't figure out a so-called "wild-card" pattern for a "low security" unique zone for local files and folders.
Is there a way to turn off the ActiveX prompt for local files?
(I haven't been able to find this question answered in another thread...)
To enable scripts on your local files:
Tools \ Internet Options \ Advanced, scroll down to the checkbox labelled "Allow active content to run in files on My Computer" and check/tick it
lavazza, thanks for that. I'm sure that's an annoyance, that's been effecting a lot of users.
I find that solutions/workarounds to such annoyances are almost always at hand, simply by Googling the relevant 'error' message
Thanks lavazza. I've never heard how to do that before. Been cursing Microsoft for protecting me from my hard drive for years.
