    Last week I was running IE7 and noticed that even though the "Enable
    Protected Mode" tick box under Tools > Internet Options > Security was
    properly checked the Status Bar at the bottom of the main screen said
    "Protected Mode: Off". So I installed IE8, but it still said the same. So
    I reset the security level to "Default" and re Set the tick box, clicked
    Apply, and restarted IE and the status bar still says the protected mode is
    off. What is going on here? What can I do about it.

    Vista SP1?

    You're logged in to the Administrator account (vs. an account with Admin
    privileges)?
