So I've been using Secunia PSI for a long time now, but after the latest update I need to change
my IE settings so that Active Scripting is enabled in order to run the program.
A warning pops up when I change the setting, so my question is, do I just enable Active Scripting and no worries or what?

@Mouri

I'm rather surprised that it is only now that you've needed to attend to it.....I too have been using psi for a while, and it was from the first that Active Scripting was enabled. I don't think I remember any instance of it being a problem or any suggestion that the action was unsafe.

As follows is the extract from the FAQ's which refers to it :-
In Security Settings, go to the Scripting>Active Scripting option.
Make sure that Active Scripting is enabled (rather than Disabled or Prompted).
Press OK then Yes.

I should be interested to learn of any worry regarding, from other members of the forum.....some of whom have much more techsavvy than me.
Nevertheless, hope it's of some help........regards,

Does the warning say "Are you sure you want to change the settings in this zone"?

If U are resetting the zones to default via the reset button the warning can be safely ignored & the answer is yes.

By default Active Scripting is enabled.

The warning is relevant if U decide to go "off piste" & customise the settings - not a good idea unless U are knowledgable or have sort advice.

Hope this helps.

Please to see U have got it all sorted.

On that basis, I will lock this thread for U in a few hours time unless U post back asking for it to be left open.
