Disable Active Scripting in Internet Explorer

To disable Active Scripting for a particular Web site, you can add that site to the Restricted Sites zone, and then disable Active Scripting and other content for the Restricted Sites zone This prevents most pop-ups from working, but only for the sites that you add to the Restricted Sites zone.

To add a site to the Restricted Sites zone in Internet Explorer:

1. Start Internet Explorer.

2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.

3. Click the Security tab.

4. Click Restricted Sites, and then click Sites.

5. In the Add this Web site to the zone box, type the Web address for the site that you want to restrict, and then click Add Repeat this step if you want to add other sites to the zone.

6. Click OK.

7. Click Default Level to set the Restricted Sites zone to the recommended level, which disables Active Scripting.

8. Click OK
