      Hi Ray,

      must run, can't dig into deeper into this right now, but here's a hint:
      It's got to do with the IE zone model: IE thinks your local PC is more
      dangerous than a website.
      Try to search for "mark of the web" and you'll be fine.

      Cost me quite some time and a few grey hairs (CD production).
