The above is the info on the subject I'm having trouble getting to work.

What it is, I have a complete web site on my hard drive. I'm trying to run some
mpg, ra, au, wav files , but each link requires me to allow blocked content.

I used the help where it said to allow in the download section. NADA.

Repeated in the active x. NADA.
Even went so far as to set to LOW security. NADA.
I'm not on any sort of net work. Just me, myself, and I on a single machine.

Just a real pain having to allow on every file that I know is clean.

How do I get the helps to do what they say ?
Oh yeah I changed the settings, and quit IE and ran again after changing
settings each time.

I wanted to add file:\\C:\zdir\index.html to the trusted zone, and this went
nowhere also.
It took file://localserv but had no effect.

If you were running a local web server, you could use its DHCP-assigned
IP address to go out and back in to connect to your web server to apply
the changes in security settings that you have been making in the
Internet security zone. That security zone is when you are making
connects external to your host (even if all you do is use the external
interface of your NIC to connect to a local web server). Those settings
do NOT apply when you are trying to render a page locally which appears
to be what you are doing. You need to add the My Computer security zone
to Internet Options so you can adjust your *local* security settings.

See Microsoft's KB article #315933 on how to add the My Computer
security zone to Internet Options. Normally this zone is not displayed.
Or, like I said, go out and back in through your NIC's external IP
address to your web server to see that page so then the Internet
security zone gets applied.

You're kidding right ? That'd be like removing the tires from the car because
they hit a bump every once in awhile.

This security's fine with me. I know it's configurable, if it weren't I would
remove it. For normal usage you can't get much better. I'm down to a weekly
virus scan. I see one in email every once in awhile, but that right there says
it's working because they're caught and sent off disabled to quarantine.

It integrates perfectly with all but the most obscure virus software, seldom
see any popups anymore.

Why buy the software if you're going to remove it ?
