I don't think High is the "default" default level for the Internet zone so it looks to me like this is being set via GPO. Is the computer this is running on joined to a Windows AD domain? – joeqwerty Mar 2 '11 at 4:34
@Joe: This PC is not on a domain, Active Directory or otherwise. – JohnB Mar 3 '11 at 4:03

A PC also has Local Policies. See here on how to change them. Though I don't know which one would block that specific slider.
