I am running XP Pro with SP2 and IE6. Whenever I try to open an html file in IE6 containing javascript on my Local drive, I get the message saying that IE has restricted the file from showing active content. I can override this by 'allowing blocked content' on a file by file basis, but I want to tell IE6 to stop doing this security checking for ALL my Local html javascript pages. I know that they are safe because I wrote them! Is this possible? Many thanks
