Just got one of the new Asus desktops and have spent the last few days getting used to IE 10 and windows 8. Have been playing around with the safety settings. Was wondering about the "Discuss Add On" tab. What is it for and what does do? When to enable and when to disable? Have googled the hell out of it and no answers. When in doubt, go back to the pros who knows...

Could you provide a bit more information? Where is this "tab" you see? Could you take a screenshot?

Isn't that something which the social networks put up? (Wiki: Facebook) I don't use any.

Hello
Well it took me a few minutes to find it again but it is actually in the manage add ons in internet security. From there it is in the "run without permission" tab. This has no publisher and there is no info anywhere about this tab.

Totally lost!
Is this under the IE security tab? Which one at what level? How does the "discuss" pop up come into it?

Sorry, my stupidity. Hit tools button, then manage add ons (which can be accessed from safety or manage add ons. Then where it says show, go to run without permission and that is where it is.
My com lingo gets a little crossed sometimes but it's getting better. I promise to read more stuff on here.
Cheers

Tks. I did look in there whilst searching. No such add on in mine?

Maybe, as I said, it is a social network add-on you have picked up?

I agree
If as you say you go Manage add-ons and then with toolbars and extensions selected you use the drop arrow to select Run without Permission - Neither do I see anything about Discuss add-on

Even with the option of right click to configure which information columns are show I still cannot get a discuss

If you mean DISCUSS ADD-ON is an option presented to you as is enable or disable or search for etc
then could you please send a screenshot

If it is the name of the actual add-on under run without permission as you say there is NO publisher listed then I am even more convinced we need a screenshot

right click on the white area click columns, then select
version,
used,
file,
class ID
and type-
now what is shown against this mysterious - discuss add-on please,
On the Type column - is it by any chance explorer bar

Run without permission means PRE-APPROVED and they are usually either part of IE or Windows itself and its allied software. Generally you would not need to change settings in run without permission.

I think I have tracked it down. It is an IE toolbar, with links to discussion websites. I believe if you enable it, you should se the toolbar.

That is why I asked for file in my post 8
Shdocvw.dll in turn hosts the Mshtml.dll component, as well as any other Active Document component (such as a Microsoft Office application) that can be loaded in place in the browser when the user navigates to a specific document type

I believe it to be connected with the Microsoft Office template shown above the entry

CLSID: {BDEADE7F-C265-11D0-BCED-00A0C90AB50F}
Name: &Discuss
Filename: Shdocvw.dll (MS file!)
Location: %SYSDIR%
Description: Microsoft Office "Web Discussions"
Explorer Bar for IE, see here


to reassure you - it is not anything to worry about if it was enabled I recommend you leave it enabled.
Those pre-approved add-ons are generally best left alone.

Just for interest. I could see it was disabled. Did you try to enable and, with what result?
