Active Content In IE Policy
Wondering if anyone might be able to offer some much needed advise on this one.
Our Year 10 students are doing a web design project using Serif WebPlus X2. Part of their project is to include active content on their web sites like marquees/rollovers etc.
On our student Internet Explorer policy we have the option to "Allow active content to run files on my computer" unchecked. Whenever they preview their websites or go to any sites that have active content, the active content does not load nor do they get a prompt giving them the option to allow. We have this all disabled due to security.
I know the option to "Allow active content to run files on my computer" is a general setting but I was wondering is there anyway to have it disabled without prompt for Internet sites and enabled without prompt for local websites running from a local drive?
Also if we were to allow it with prompts what security implications does this have? for example students don't have read/write permissions to the C drive so even if some dodgy active content was allowed through would it be able to do any damage?
Thanks in advance.
