Local Machine Lockdown

So, just to be clear, if zone security isn't working out, the best course of action is not to fix it, but to start raising the security level for lower-security zones?

Opening local content, such as HTML documentation or XML files, since XP sp2, results in a confounding, infuriating info bar authorization prompt that does not remember your decision, so opening the same XML file requires the same tedious steps each time.

It's a good thing Microsoft is protecting us from their own default XML stylesheet. Folding XML tags can be pretty dangerous.
