IE8 Protected Mode Off with UAC On
I have ensured my user a/c control is set to maximum i.e. Always notify.
But noticed in bottom right-hand corner of IE8 that protected mode is off?
With IE tools > internet options > security the relevant check boxes are ticked to enable this feature.
I'm using AVG (free version) and that is fine but why oh why does IE8 say protected mode is off?
There is only a single user a/c on this machine so I am the administrator. I am launching IE8 is the usual normal way by clicking on the icon in my quick launch section of the taskbar.
