IT Help Central - How to Disable Active Scripting

If there is no need for Active Scripting, it is easy to disable.  There are two places one can go in order to disable it.

Once the Internet Properties window is opened, click on the Security tab.  This will produce a window similar to that presented by Figure 1 below.

Figure 1.  The Internet Properties windows is opened and the Security tab is selected.

Select the Internet Web content zone in Figure 1 above and then click the Custom Level... button.  A Security Settings window will appear, similar in appearance to Figure 2 below.

In the Security Settings window, scroll downward until the Scripting heading is found.  Under the Active scripting section, select the Disable option and then click the OK button.  A warning will appear (Figure 3) verifying that changes to the security settings were actually desired.  Click Yes to close the Warning! box.

Active Scripting is now disabled.
