How to Turn Internet Explorer InPrivate Filtering On or Off

information   Information
InPrivate Filtering in IE8 and IE9 helps prevent the websites you visit from automatically sharing details about your visit with other websites. This will show you how to turn InPrivate Filtering to off, Automatically block (on), or Choose content to block or allow (on) in the current Internet Explorer browsing session. When turned on, InPrivate Filtering will only stay on in the current Internet Explorer browsing session. When you close all instances of Internet Explorer, InPrivate Filtering will be turned off by default.
Note   Note
Today websites increasingly pull content in from multiple sources, providing tremendous value to consumer and sites alike. Users are often not aware that some content, images, ads and analytics are being provided from third party websites or that these websites have the ability to potentially track their behavior across multiple websites. InPrivate Blocking provides users an added level of control and choice about the information that third party websites can potentially use to track browsing activity.
warning   Warning
Because InPrivate Blocking is designed to watch for and block only third-party content that appears with a high frequency across sites you visit, no content is blocked until such levels are detected, nor is any such content blocked which is served directly by the site you are visiting. Depending on your web browsing activity and sites visited, the amount of time it can take before such content is automatically blocked can vary widely.

EXAMPLE: InPrivate Filtering Set to On (Auto or Choose) and Off
NOTE: This will be displayed in the status bar at the bottom of a Internet Explorer window to show you what the status of InPrivate Blocking is.
