    Is anyone having the same problem I had? I get this on CSS pages!

    Here's how you stop this annoying bug. It is most frustrating if you're a web developer and you have to keep on allowing it when you are viewing pages offline on pages you have designed.

    Tools > Internet Options >Advanced > [TICK] Security Allow Active Content to run in File on My Computer

    Hope this helps !

    :)

    ITS NOT A BUG!!!

    I founded one of the internet's biggest consumer advice sites on spoof email scams and can put my hand on my heart while saying - don't enable the content like this, please!

    I understand your annoyance at this minor infringement on your uninterrupted surfing, but there really is very good reason to stop and think before allowing the active content that IE is talking about. I sometimes find it annoying too, but would rather have a say in whether it is allowed or not.

    Scripting vulnerabilities are a major issue in successful Identity Theft/Spoofed email and web pages. I was the first to discover spoofed web pages that could place falsified web addresses over the genuine address normally shown in browser address bars for instance, and to be honest, I really doubted (and still do) that many of us would have known it was happening.

    Allow it by all means, but there is no measure of web or computer softwares' propensity to expose you to a multitude of dangers. Vulnerabilities are discovered on a daily basis in all manner of software and scripting. And there are plenty of expert coders out there who are involved in exploiting these dangers. Please excercise the utmost caution and accept the need for the 'stop and think' culture that this thing belies.

    :)

    I should have added that you can always add sites to your trusted site list, but only add sites that you implicitly trust [Tools/Internet Options/Security]. You can then allow active scripting for trusted sites only.
