Blocking Dangerous Scripts and Unsafe File Downloads

In addition to its capability to host embedded controls and applets, Internet Explorer supports simple scripting, using JavaScript and VBScript. With the help of scripts, Web designers can create pages that calculate expressions, ask and answer questions, check data that users enter in forms, and link to other programs, including ActiveX controls and Java applets.

Although the security risks posed by most scripts are slight, Internet Explorer gives you the option to disable Active scripting as well as scripting of Java applets. You find both options in the Security Settings dialog box when you choose Custom settings.
