Cross-Site Scripting is an Internet Explorer feature which protects you from XSS attacks that come from a website. In your case the filter is activated and based on some code (although the website is clean) found in website's files. The filter activates itself and disables any request. Disabling this features may compromise your computer while browsing infected websites using Internet Explorer and shouldn't be deactivated.

If you believe that the website is safe you can disable it while playing.

To disable this feature, please, follow these steps:

  1. In Internet Explorer click Tools found on Menu bar then Internet options
  2. Navigate to Security, chose Internet and click Custom Level
  3. Scroll down and tick Disable under Enable XSS filter
  4. Hit Ok, and reload the page with the problem.

Thank you for taking the time to answer my problem. I am an old retired man and my old computer of 9 years finally gave out. This new computer i chose to go with Internet Explorer and not Firefox-why did i never get this message before. Dont know what xss attacks are, so i will take your advice and leave it alone. Your answer is very clear and step by step for clearing it--I THANK YOU.
