Consider the following scenario:
You install Microsoft Input Method Editor (IME) for the Japanese language on a Windows Vista-based computer.
You add some user-defined words to the Microsoft IME user dictionary.
Protected mode is enabled in Windows Internet Explorer 7.
In this scenario, you cannot enter the user-defined words in Internet Explorer 7 by using Microsoft IME.
Note This problem occurs only in Internet Explorer 7. The user-defined words that are added to the user dictionary can be entered correctly in most programs. For example, the user-defined words can be entered in Notepad.
This problem occurs because the user dictionary requires a higher integrity level than the integrity level that Internet Explorer 7 can access.
