However, some Anti-Virus, security software such as norton, etc.. disables the security settings.

1st try to reset the Internet explorer settings as explained here

If this didn't resolve the issue refer to how to re-enable the zones by editing the Registery as explained here

Please note that registery is a very sensitive area and you could result in damage, you should also backup as mentioned.
In internet options, security tab, click --> default.  Close, reboot, and then go back and set custom options.
