IE8 has a new feature called LCIE (loosely coupled internet explorer). Because of this the IEFrame and the Tabs run in different processes and at different integrity level.
I recently bought an HP Pavilion laptop, vista home edition, 64 bit, 320 GB, 4 GB RAM
This is the problem. Some things (like videos) will only play using internet explorer, even though I always use FF. However, when I got to IE, I am uneasy because on the bottom bar, it says: protected mode: off. I have gone to tools, and security, and the box is checked that says it is in protected mode. I have unchecked and rechecked. I have open and closed and opened again IE. I have restarted the computer. Nothing seems to fix the problem, and I'm worried that my system will be vulnerable for all sorts of nasty things.
Can anyone help?
