No pop-ups and fraudulent attacks with Internet Explorer® 8
Internet Explorer, which comes by default with Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional, and Ultimate edition, is the fastest, easiest, and safest browser ever. This article takes you through some of the interesting new features that you will hardly find in other browsers.
Phishing, whereby someone dishonestly poses as a valid business entity in order to get you to pony up some very private and sensitive information, such as your Social Security number, passwords, and/or credit card numbers, which, if someone obtains, will put to no good use. The damage caused due to phishing can run the gamma from a simple incapability to access your e-mail all the way to some heavy financial and other losses. To help you guard against this kind of identity theft, Windows 7 Internet Explorer 8 is launched which protects you from phishing attacks, online fraud, spoofed websites, as well as websites that contains malicious software.
If you visit an Internet page that’s on Microsoft list of phishing Web sites, Internet Explorer 8 in Windows 7-based PC, shows a warning Web page and notification on the address bar. You can then close it from the warning Web page or continue to browse the site. If you visit an Internet page that is not on this list but which exhibits doubtful characteristics, then Windows 7 Internet Explorer 8 only warns you that the site might be a phishing site on the address bar.
If you become doubtful of a particular web site that you have never visited before, then you can have Windows 7 Internet Explorer 8 to check the site by choosing Safety>SmartScreen Filter>Check This Website from the toolbar menu. The SmartScreen Filter alert dialog box then appears and tells you that the existing Internet site address will be sent to Microsoft to check against a list of known phishing sites. Then click 'OK'.
Perhaps one of the most painful aspects of browsing the World Wide Web is coming across those pages littered with horrible automated pop-up ads. Fortunately, Windows 7 Internet Explorer 8 comes equipped with a Pop-Up Blocker feature which is turned on by default, that prevents the display of any automated pop-ups on a page that want to magically put into practice the moment you load the page.
Windows 7 Internet Explorer 8 lets you know that it has blocked a pop-up on a page by showing a message that appears at the top of the page. To go ahead and show an automated pop-up, you then click 'Show Blocked Pop-up'.
You can add your favorite site’s web address to a list of exceptions in the Pop-up Blocker Settings dialog box, if you see the Web site's automated pop-ups. This can be opened by selecting Tools>Pop-Up Blocker>Pop-Up Blocker Settings from the toolbar menu.
