    While looking through my Internet Options, I noticed I no longer have a security tab!! All I have is General, Privacy, Content, Connections, and Programs. The security tab is GONE! Please help, I want to change my JAVA and Active X controls.

    Thanks, Blade

    It sounds like a regsitry restrictoin is in place. GO to start>Run and type regedit. Press enter.

    Navigate to:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel

    Hightlight Control Panel in the left pane.

    Look for this entry in the right pane.
    SecurityTab
    If you find it, right click onit and choose delete from the pop up menu.
    Open a new instance of IE to see the change.

    That worked!! Thanks for your help. What possible causes would impose a restriction of the security tab?

    You've probably unknowingly downloaded some kind of spyware program. Try Downloading Lavasoft's AdAdaware or X-cleaner from www.spystomper.exe. I've used both programs, they do wonders. NO problems either.
