Exclamation Setting Mixed Content permissions in IE11 if you have lost thumbnails

Okay the instructions that have been posted in other threads that are not exact and may or may-not work for most peoples settings of IE until they reset to current baseline.

This procedure ASSUMES that you are current in all Microsoft Windows 7 / 8 / 8.1 patches and have all the current security patches for IE.

Launch IE and click Help then About. Should have a check box on install new versions automatically. If not check it. Should have a Update version line that says Update versions: 11.0.49 (KB4052978) or better.

If not run windows update for the category of "Important" updates until there are no outstanding "Important" updates. Reboot.

Check IE revision it should now say Update versions: 11.0.49 (KB4052978) or higher.

Makes sure all IE windows are closed. Open Control panel. Internet settings. Advanced tab at the top right. At bottom click RESET. This will put all your IE settings to baseline current default security settings. WARNING if you also check the delete personal settings, the process will delete all your passwords, clear cookies and browsing history. For this procedure you ONLY need to reset the security portion. Click RESET. Once the window closes if the Apply button is highlighted apply and ok. Restart your computer.

Open Control Panel. Internet Settings. Click Security tab at top left. Click "Trusted sites" with the green check-mark.

Next click the Sites radio button.

The Websites: box should be blank or have any local HP laser jet printers that have jet direct service enabled. If there are other websites there that you did not add, remove them, even though you have reset security and the box should be empty. This may indicate you have a root kit virus if sites have popultated this box after the reset of security and the reboot.

Add the Team Camaro website to the zone: box by typing in "" and make sure the box at the bottom for require server verification (https:) for all sites in this zone.

Click Add.

Accept the warning box.

The site url populates the box with an *. at the front of the url indicating all sub domains.

Now click close.

This will bring you back to the Security tab, now click the Custom Level radio button. Scroll down or up to the "Display Mixed Content" setting and tick enable and then click OK. Click apply and ok on the internet properties.

Launch IE and browse the site.
