1 Answer 1


Can you describe what you mean by "issue"?

Related to #1, SharePoint 2007 does not support IE8 unless SP2 has been deployed. As long as your SharePoint 2007 environment is patched to SP2, then IE8 standard view is supported for both SharePoint 2007 and SharePoint 2010, so compatibility should not be required.

Related to #4, Medium-Low is the default setting for Local Intranet, and your internal browsers should be recognizing your SharePoint sites as Local Intranet for them to work properly with Windows Integrated authentication (if that is what you are using).
