Anyone who has spent more than a minute or two administering a Microsoft Windows PC knows about Internet Options. It's a dialog box that you can call up from the Tools/Internet Options menu of Internet Explorer (IE). It also appears as an icon in the control panel.

You pick a zone, and from then on the collection of features that make up that zone dictate how secure surfing the Web with IE will be. Nailing down the right zone cocktail is one of the first tasks a network administrator thinks about when there's a heap of users all needing access to the Web.
