My Security Controls are Set to "Paranoid" :-)

Recently, I kicked up my security controls on my computer a notch or so.

When I am A2K, and want to post a URL, I get a message "The website is using a scripted window to ask you for information. If you trust this website, click here to allow scripted windows".

Fair enough. If I want more security, I have to put up with some machinations. When I click on the message, I get a message saying "Temporarily allow scripted windows".

Now, on other sites, the message gives you a choice, either to allow scripted windows "temporarily" or "always". If I click "always" I never have to bother with these messages on that particular site.

On A2K, there is only one choice, so I have to go through the rigamarole each time that I want to post a URL or a picture. Now I trust A2K. Why is my security center not giving me the choice of always allowing scripted windows on A2K?

BTW, my security center is set to "medium-high".

The scripted windows thing may be the green ads, I'm not sure.

Jes- I understand that possibility. What I want to know is why am I not given a choice on A2K of always allowing the scripted windows, as I am on other sites?

we upgraded to IE7, and i experienced the same issue.

to fix:
    go to Tools ---> Internet Options click the Security Tab click Trusted Sites (green check mark) click the Sites button on the right de-check "Require server verification (http:) for all sites in this zone" add this website to the zone: http://www.able2know.com close OK

adding http://advertising.able2know.com to Restricted Sites seems to've eliminated the warnings...

Not usually, no. Or are you just talking about this specific time.

Region- Tried putting http://advertising.able2know.com into restricted zone, but I am still only getting the choice of allowing scripted windows temporarily. It may have something to do with my firewall.

The heck with it. I can live with it this way.

that could very well be, Phoenix.
i don't know enough about it to say one way or the other...

but i do know that this is how the settings should look:

Place *.able2know.com (asterisk-dot-able2know-dot-com) in the "Trusted" zone for both IE and your firewall, and in both IE and your firewall, allow A2K to place cookies. You prolly oughtta allow A2K to open popups, too; otherwise autoformating text/links/images, PM notifications and spellcheck won't work as they should.
