Quick Fixes For Internet Explorer (IE) Bugs

Here are a few steps you can take to improve IE stability and security. The goal is to disable parts of IE that cause the security problems.

Go to Tools -> Internet Options, and select the Security tab. You will see a row of icons showing the levels of security levels IE works to, from the whole Internet, to Restricted Sites. The first thing you can do, is set the default security level to High by pushing 'Default level' and dragging the slider to High.

Select the Custom Level button if you want more control over your IE settings. You probably want to try the default High setting for a few days, and if you notice IE is too restricted with websites it opens, you may consider changing the setting or using the Custom settings.
