Are you trying to ask can a website modify your registary just by you viewing it?

If so then no it can't, unless it's a new bug in IE.

Can you post the site in here without breaking any rules? then maybe we can go and visit and check it out for you, but i don't think a website can make changes to your registry - if that is what your asking.

A website can not make changes to your website unless you give it permission to.

If you gave us the url we might be able to help more.

Hi Guys, I think you've missed the question Roger Moore, user2725 was asking can a visited web site alter your reg settings on your PC...

The answer would be yes, although not directly, the site would have to download a file or an exe programme that would reconfigure or alter a file in a predetermined location, I have seen this done quite regular, for instance have you ever had your default browser location changed?? I have.... not a reg file alteration, but non the less, a change made just by visiting a web site..

I've heard of, but not experienced, dial up numbers being changed to premium rate numbers...

You need a good firewall and a virus checker, it would also would be worth running a trojan search on your PC..
