Many websites feature active content that provides entertainment and convenience for the user. However, active content can also be a security issue. Internet Explorer disables convenient features such as automatic redirect to protect you against websites that have been altered by hackers to redirect your browser to a malicious website. You should enable automatic redirects in Internet Explorer only if you have installed countermeasures that secure your computer from website attacks.
