    Fresh install of Windows 7, and I'd love to keep it running clean.

    Are there any guides out there to locking down IE8? Maybe a page that
    discusses what each one of the settings under the Security dialog actually
    means?

    What do you guys do? I love IE, but I know the 32-bit version isn't he
    safest of all the browsers out there.
