Windows 7: How do I set exceptions for IE 9 security levels?

How do I set exceptions for IE 9 security levels?

I have IE 9 security set for Medium-High, which is great 99% of the time. However, I use an older version of Autodesk Maya which uses Explorer to access its help files. Every time I open it it gives me a warning about scripts and Active X, and I have to manually allow blocked content. Is there some way to tell Explorer to make an exception for Maya help (or whatever)?

Thanks folks!


PS: I love the examples of how not to write thread titles! I'm sick of:

If you trust the site and program, you can add it to the Trusted sites security zone. See the following Tutorial and follow the instructions from here:

OK Dwarf, that looks prety straightforward, and thanks a whole lot! One question: The site in question is on my local hard drive:

C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Maya8.5\docs\Maya8.5\en_US\index.html

Will that make any difference?

Ooh! Lookie! I got a little dot and I'm "skilled!"
