PROTECT YOURSELF

One way to protect yourself while surfing the Web is to crank up your security settings. In Internet Explorer, click Tools, Internet Options, select the Security tab, and drag the slider to High. If the slider isn't visible, press the Default Level button to restore it.

Setting your security level to High disables features that the unscrupulous could exploit, but it also decreases your browser's functionality. For most users the Medium security is adequate.

Web-savvy users, try the Custom Level button to adjust the security for various elements such as ActiveX controls and cookies.
