Sending HTML forms

When I try to click on forms (such as the weekly poll in C/Net), I receive a Security Alert: "your current security settings do not allow you to send HTML forms." Does anyone know what settings this refers too or how to change them? I tried the Tools, Internet Options, Security tab, Custom Level, Misc suggested by Cursorcowboy, but that didn't do the trick!! I'm at a loss at which settings are blocking this action. Thanks for your time & trouble if you can help.

From Internet Explorer, click Tools, Internet Options , click Security Tab. Click Custom Level button. Select "Submit nonencrypted form data" option as Enable.

Good Luck,

Thanks Cetin...I tried that and it didn't do the trick. That is the same tip that Cursorcowboy posted a while ago. I must have some other security key holding me up. Thanks again though, I really appreciate the response.

You can check the 1601 value in the registry (for Internet Zone) in order to see if it's proper (should be 0).

1601 means "Submit non-encrypted form data"

For details, read

Q182569 -"Description of Internet Explorer Security Zones Registry Entries"


P.S. I was absent for a while, so obviously I didn't read BatMan's answer. That's why it's better to post in the original thread. This Forum's software will throw it on top.


You are welcome and "Good Luck",

Cetin

Thanks again Cetin...I'll give the registry a shot. I hadn't posted this question before...I picked up on someone else's posting of a few days ago and the answer that was given to him. It was the same problem I had so I tried the tip but it didn't work for me. I'll let you know how this one works out. Again, Thank You for responding, I really do appreciate the help.

Hi Cetrin...I did check the 1601 value and it was set at 1 for the Internet Zone. I changed it to 0 like you suggested, rebooted but still have the same problem with the C/NET Poll (same message) so I assume I haven't cracked the nut yet. I appreciate your help & if you have any other ideas, please let me know.
Thanks again,
Ed

The 1601 having the value equal to 3 should give that error. You should check under both registry paths:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings

HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings

and change 1601 to 0 on both.


Note

HKLM is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

HKCU is HKEY_CURRENT_USER

It is not necessary to restart PC, not even opening a new IE instance. After you check the 1601 and change its value to 0, don't close regedit. Try again the poll page, click regedit on taskbar, press F5 (that means refresh) and notice the actual 1601 value.


Good Luck,

Cetin

Hi Cetin...I must have a stubborn computer here!!! I tried your suggestion about changing both, refreshing and checking the poll again...same result!! The values stayed at (0) but I got the same error message. I can't figure this one out!

WOW!!! You've given me a "Little" reading to do!! Let me go through all of this and hopefully it'll solve my problem. Thank you for responding and providing these leads. I'll post a result after I read everything. (Might take me a day or two with this much info!!)

Thanks again, I REALLY appreciate everyone's help.

OK Ed, let's try another shot for 1601. This time change it under Zones number 3. In other words, expand the following registry paths:


HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\3

HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\3

and change 1601 to 0 on both.


Note

HKLM is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

HKCU is HKEY_CURRENT_USER

Don't close regedit and monitorize its 1601 value by hitting F5 (after using IE).


Good Luck,

Cetin

Hi Cetrin,

I thought that these were the same instructions you gave me the first time but I went back & tried them again...and I believe it WORKED!!! At least I didn't get the error message when I tried the C/Net Poll!! I don't know what I did differently this time but who cares??? I want to thank both you and Cursorcowboy for coming to my rescue. It's great having people who will go out of their way to help. Thank you both again and I hope I can return the favour someday.
