IE 7.0

I hadn't paid much attention to plug-ins until it was brought to my attention.  The performance of IE 7.0 (I also use Firefox but cannot for everything) is dramatically affected by these plug-ins and they seem to grow and get out of control.  Disabling them is getting old fast so I tried to fiend an option within IE that would at least alert me when a plug-in was to be added.  I checked "Internet Options" and came up with nothing.  Any ideas?

Open Internet Explorer
Tools->Internet Options->Security

Slide it to Top to make the High security enabled.

You can also set the custom level.

This looks like a winner (Custom) but sliding the bar to Max; could that impair performance during browsing or become annoying?

Well, it would probably become annoying as you would get more prompts in IE about the add-on being loaded for viewing content. Add-ons are certainly a neccessary evil these days but this is only due to the content out there, ie; Flash, shockwave, silverlight and so on.

Try the custom level settings or medium level setting.
