Unable to search at any popular web directory.

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

In response to an increased number of attackers using malicious Web sites to attack visitor's browsers, I have hardened my organizations' Internet Explorer security settings.

During testing, noticed that I can no longer search at any popular web directory.

What change should I make to resolve the problem while minimizing security risks?

If you do not want to lower your Internet Explorer security settings. 

You can try adding the Website to allow you to connect.

Here is how:

Open Internet Explorer.
Go to your Internet Options from Tools (or from the gear icon, if you have IE9)
Click Privacy tab, between Security and Content.
Click Sites button.
Type the address of website that you have to have access under "Address of website:".
Click Allow button. Click OK. Click Apply.
Click OK.
Restart your Internet explorer browser and then try to connect to your website, see if it works.

You may also want to lower your browsers security settings or reset your browser security settings. 

To do this, you need to go back to your Internet Options from your Internet Explorer and click on Security tab, look for the button below that says "Reset all zones to default level". 

Click OK.
