How to Keep InPrivate Filtering On or Off in New Internet Explorer 8 Session

information   Information
By default InPrivate Filtering is turned off when you start a new Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) browsing session until you turn it on. This will allow you to set InPrivate Filtering to be turned On to Auto, On to Choose content to block (manual), or Off at the start of every new Internet Explorer browsing session automatically.
Note   Note
While in Internet Explorer, InPrivate Filtering helps prevent websites from collecting information about sites you visit. Many webpages use content from websites other than the one you are visiting. These websites are called third-party websites. The content from these third party websites, such as images, maps, or videos, is often provided to the website you are visiting in exchange for information about who is looking at the content. If the third-party website provides content to a large number of the websites you visit, the website owners could develop a profile of your browsing preferences. The profile of your browsing preferences allows the website to do things such as offer you targeted advertisements.

Usually this third party website content is displayed seamlessly, such as in an embedded video, or image. The content appears to originate from the website you originally went to, so you don't know that another website might be able to see where you are surfing. InPrivate Filtering works by analyzing web content on the webpages you visit. If it sees the same content being used on a number of websites, it will add it to the list to allow or block that content. By default, InPrivate Filtering will automatically block any website third party content from displaying it detects in at least 10 different websites you visited. You can also set the number of websites you visit that share content before they are put in the list to what you want instead. You also can choose to turn off InPrivate Filtering, or manually choose to allow or block the listed third party website content.
