I was having some problems with my internet connection (which have been resolved) but my friend came over and hastily set all of my Internet Explorer settings back to default to "solve the problem".

can someone lead me to the right direction to get the settings so that they give me the most security/safety/control? (like what should and shouldn't be checkmarked, etc) thanks in advance!

As a whole, IE is a fairly secure environment. If wanted you can go into the security tab and set your internet setting to High instead of medium. The best thing to do is to ensure you have all your windows updates completed and ensure you have some type of Antivirus/Antispyware scanners to find anything that may be lurking on your computer already. Below is a list of my most used Antispyware programs. YOu can only have one Antivirus but you can have as many antispyware programs as your heart desires and you can never have to many.

Microsoft Anti-Spyware (for Win2000/WinXP only)
