Hello! How to create a list of reliable/safe websites authorized/allowed to run JavaScripts or Flash as well as a list of unreliable/unsafe websties unauthorized/disallowed to do so on a Windows 7 Ultimate & IE 8 x64 system? Something similar to "NoScript" plugin of Mozilla Firefox. A million thanks in advance for your detailed explanations.
Best,
Danesh
Sincerely,
Danesh

Hi :

I recommend you look into using the FREE
"SpywareBlaster", available at http://www.javacools...areblaster.html

Their website say they are compatible with both
Win 7 and IE8, but I do NOT IF this applies to a
64 bit Operating System and browser !?

There is a "Tutorial" on this program at
http://www.bleepingc...tutorial49.html

There is currently over 14,000 "Items" in its
database .
For the very Best in Life :

@ SpiritWind: How does SpywareBlaster create a list of safe websites to run Javascript and Flash? From what I see, all it protects from is ActiveX and cookies, so please teach me.

@Danesh, you can mark a site as "Trusted" in Internet Explorer by going to Tools > Internet Options > Security tab > Trusted sites. Keep in mind that big, popular, and respected websites do get targeted for malware intrusions, so setting a site as "Trusted" is not a perfect solution. You should still be diligent with your web surfing. You can manage your Flash Player settings by going to the online Settings Manager.

I'm curious, if you know the benefits of using Firefox to easily manage Flash, JavaScript, ActiveX, and using the Adblock Plus browser add-on, why are you determined to stick with Internet Explorer? Is it the required browser for work? In addition, why'd you create three threads (1, 2, 3) that ask similar questions and have pretty much the same answer? Forgive me if my question seems rude. I would like to understand you better so that I may better assist you. =)

My dear 'AgentF',
Thank you very much indeed for your kind help. I sincerely apologize for asking similar questions. To be honest, I'm not good at computer field, to my chagrin! I get confused (even sometimes paralized) easily with techy terms! I whole-heartedly implore your kind and manly patience with me.
Yours,
Danesh

There is no need for an apology. We're all here to learn. =) Part of the troubleshooting process is evaluating the technical knowledge of the user so an appropriate level of advice can be given. Sometimes I misjudge people in this respect. If I ever come off cold or tough, my apologies to you.

As a matter of fact, I didn't feel bad about your question. In effect, you're totally right. I'm just sort of upset with my poor technical knowledge! That's it! Anyway, I sincerely once again appreciate your patience with me and my very low level questions.
Warm regards,
Danesh

Danesh
