In Internet Explorer 7, trusted Web sites and Web sites that are not trusted do not appear in the same window. By default, protected mode is disabled for Web sites that are registered as trusted Web sites. Protected mode is enabled for Web sites that are not registered as trusted Web sites.
When Internet Explorer 7 starts for the first time, it is redirected from a Microsoft Web site to the http://runonce.msn.com/runonce2.aspx Web site. This Web site is used to set various configuration settings. If you register "*.microsoft.com" as a trusted Web site, Internet Explorer 7 starts with protected mode disabled to access the Microsoft Web site. Then, Internet Explorer 7 redirects you to the home page that is set in the preferences. However, if the home page is not a trusted Web site, protected mode is enabled. Therefore, a new Internet Explorer 7 window opens.
