Download the configuration change that protects against a recently reported vulnerability that can allow an Internet Web site to execute script from the Local Machine Zone (LMZ).

[COLOR=#1951B9]An ADO stream object contains methods for reading and writing binary files and text files. When an ADO stream object is combined with known security vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer, a Web site could execute scripts from the Local Machine zone.

Again? Seems like you'r used to that "phrase", so you seem to be the problem."The problem lies somewhere between the computer and the keyboard."And you most likely got your PC setup the wrong way, unless you stand inbeetween the computer and the keyboard which i find very unlikely; because the only thing beetween the computer and the keyboard is eithere speakers or the Monitor (and sometimes a hot nude chick.It's more like "PLBMAC. Problem lies beetween monitor and chair"Saying IE works fine is like saying WXP is bugless.You'll know the meaning of "fine" when you try firefox out.Edit:Lol, i just read my post, and sorry i was kinda harsh. It's that what you said was really hilarious.

[b]Not this, please.[/b] Especially in Frontpage News.No flaming on this forum or I will have this thread edited and locked so fast you'll forget all about IE vs Firefox.While Acidmosis may have an entirely different belief than you about browsers, treat his opinion with respect. If you want to debate, there's a recent thread dedicated to this.
