Apologies if this is a stupid question but I'd rather ask a stupid question than face trouble down the road. Since installing Internet Explorer 7 I constantly get a popup warning from ZA Security Suite "Internet Explorer is attempting to monitor user activities on this computer..." I have no idea what this means or if it is dangerous. I know my system is clean as I take security seriously and conduct daily scans using of course ZA anti-virus as well as AVG by Grisoft, A-Squared by Emsisoft, Trojan Hunter, AdAware and SpyBot S&D. I also conduct several online scans bi-weekly. I always deny persmission but never check that little box - I prefer to answer each individual request. One thing though, when I open IE and get the warning from ZA, if I deny permission I cannot use the "view source code" feature anymore. If I deny permission then try to view source code I get a popup from Windows that says "Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file." If I grant persmission for IE to monitor activities then I am able to use the view source code feature. Other than that IE performs without any problems.
The only thing I can think of is since IE 7 is still beta there may be some sort of data reporting mechanism bundled with it that I don't know about.
