Protected Mode limits the ActiveX controls and other add-ons that can run in Internet Explorer. Protected Mode also gives you better control over the add-ons that are installed and used. Internet Explorer organizes add-ons into four broad categories:
• Toolbars and extensions
• Search providers
• InPrivate filtering
As I've already talked about search providers and filtering, I'll focus on toolbars, extensions, and accelerators. You manage these and other add-ons using the dialog box shown in Figure 7-14. To access this dialog box, click Tools^Manage Add-ons while working with Internet Explorer.
