Default Discovered! IE Webpage "Add On" Failure/Blocked message Location

If you get the "An Add on failed to run..." page message when you are Browsing with Internet Explorer 8, and you were wondering what has been Blocked or what have you? Your Natural instinct is to Look in the Security Settings of Internet Explorer and the Restricted Site Lists But there is No "Log item" there.
But I Found the "Log" by chance and Its in Plain View,Surprised Myself!

The item that carries This information (and It is not stored for obvious reasons) Is a Menu Item called "Webpage Privacy Policy..." Which sounds Like a Text Item In the IE Properties /Help Menus

But its not there.Instead, look in the View Menu (the item is listed above the F11 (Full Screen) Link which once known you'll never return to
There's no Keyboard shortcut for this Feature OK?
Briefiy . it lists all the Addons on that Page Blocked and Running Including Cookies
When I tested this Page when I was composing this Post I expected to see about 2 or 3 Items, the truth is, there was over 100 Items Listed With 1 Blocked Google Item Re "Doubleclick Ad" and 1 Accepted Re: "Webuser "New Thread"


There are some Controls to Block /Unblock items (separate to the IE Security/Content settings) But seek advice before touching anything
Maybe useful with some HJT queries?

Interesting, I had a look at it although I don't use IE very often. For some reason looking at it encouraged me to download 'Ghostery' for IE!

This is the route for IE 9.0 if you are running that version?
NOTE! This is on the Tool Menu List (submenu)

Yes i love that feature about IE!

I have IE6 and i can see everything thats been blocked when i load page (Cookies) but since i mostly use MyIE2 to surf with,i cannot! (It doesnt list blocked cookies,the one thing i dislike about MyIE2,other than that it is superb IN EVERY WAY and i have loved it ever since i upgraded to this version )

I have 3rd party cookies blocked which is quite important in todays internet!
