zones in internet explorer

  @[email protected]!c 21:15 08 Sep 2006

usually in internet explorer on the bottom right it says internet( as i am surfing) but sometimes when i click a link or just open ie.. it says unknown zone..and takes a while to say internet...this is slowing down web pages... any ideas as to whats causing this?? think its security or mabey router settings ?? kind regards akanic

This is set by IE and its medium level of security. Not to worry about it.

Mine sometimes says unknown mixed. Is this anything to worry about?

so if i lower security it would then in turn speed up most of my browsing??

just to add.. i have only recently been noticing would normally allways say internet.. and it will not load the page until it says internet..usually after a 4 second stall

It may be that you have recently installed security updates. Wise to leave the settings as default with IE and as long as you keep your anti virus up to date and run some spyware program now and again should not be any cause to worry...

its not the security i'm worried about its the browser slowdown. i'm all up to date with all the gumph you can shake a stick at(so to speak) will leave open for a bit regards akanic

The IE security level has little or no effect on the speed of your browser. As STREETWORK says, set it at 'Default'.

A bit of PC housekeeping will help. Clean all the crap away with click here

Disable System Restore and do full AV and anti-malware scans. Re-enable System Restore.

Then defrag the HDD and see if that helps.
