View Full Version : IE 7 Issues

09-26-2007, 04:50 AM
I have made just a mini site because I can't seem to get my site from rendering with an error in IE 7

"To help protect your security, IE has restricted this webpage from running scripts or ActiveX controls that could access your computer."

I have run other sites and it works fine. I took my site down to a couple of entries trying to find out what was causing it. Any help would be appreciated.

Here is the index page. There are not any changes to the custom file at this point. I know it has to be something silly.

Is this on IE7 with Vista or IE7 with winXP? Just curious. I know that Vista has some pretty hefty security settings set now by default which can result in EVERY page with javscript prompting a warning on a given site until you "approve" the site. I'm going to refrain from a Microsoft rant here, but that's my guess as to the issue. Here are some possible solutions...

1) Check your udm-custom.js file and make sure that any references are to files on the same site (for example, background images, indicator images, etc).

2) Use the CSS generator to make the menu css driven only (no javascript)

3) See if you can find the IE7 config setting that's causing this.

Yes, I would love to start in with IE but I'll save it:)! This is just plain ole xp with IE7 - don't get me started on Vista either. Anyway I didn't think about looking at the file paths so I will. Thanks for your help.
