I have noticed after updating WSA by downloading Version 126.96.36.199 over Version .95 that my WOT (Web of Trust) rating symbols next to the links when searching with IE 8 were missing. After looking at the "Protected Applications" in WSA the setting has changed from "Allow" to "Deny". I changed the setting back to "Allow" and the rating symbols appear. This was the only setting that changed. Is there a reason for this being the only setting changing after updating?

The most likely cause is if WoT updated, in which case the new binary would not be trusted yet.
