Security settings are an integral part of computing. These settings not only guard against unauthorised access but also protect against any kind of malware or virus attacks
, propagating through internet or external drives, which can harm the computer. The most important part, however, is to choose these security settings judiciously otherwise day-to-day computer activities like downloading can be hindered. If the user is facing downloading problems due to settings issues, then one simply has to access the Custom Level
option from Tools
to make the required changes.
