Creating Security Zones

Internet Explorer lets you create security zones based on where information comes from. For example, you might want to restrict access to web pages that can be viewed from the Internet, but not to those sites within your company's intranet. You can specify the level of security for each of the four available security zones: Local Intranet, Trusted Sites, Restricted Sites, and Internet. When you access a web page or download content from the site, Internet Explorer checks its security settings and determines the web site's zone. Internet Explorer displays a padlock icon in the status bar to indicate the web site is secure. All Internet web sites are assigned to the Internet zone until you assign individual web sites to other zones.

Select a Security Zone and Its Security Level

Click the Start button, and then click Control Panel, double-click the Internet Options in Classic view.

Click the Security tab.

Click the zone to which you want to assign security options.

If you want, click Default Level to reset the settings to Microsoft's suggested level.

Move the slider to the level of security you want to apply.

TROUBLE? If the slider is not available, click Default Level to change the security level to Medium and display the slider.

If you want to specify individual security options, click Custom Level.

Scroll to a settings area, and then click the Enable, Prompt, or Disable option button.

Click OK.

Click OK.
