FAQ: How do I open a protected file directly from Internet Explorer or any other browser?

If you click on a link to a protected file in Internet Explorer, you are asked to Open or Save the file.

To view the file, select the Open option.  Internet Explorer will then call the viewer software to display the file.

To get Internet Explorer to automatically call the viewer to display the protected file every time you click on a link, uncheck the option “always ask me before opening this type of file”.

If you are trying to view a Lizard Protector secure website, you must open this from the Protector Viewer.
