    Hi, I think to post a screenshot you need to use the camera image icon near the smiley face.


    However your description was good. This is a IE Security Warning and it has to do with the UAC. You can try lowering the setting until it doesn't appear. Go here: ount-control   


    And here:  


    Hope that helps. I think you can put a site in the trusted zone also.



    Hope that helps,

    Hi, Thanks. I know the IE Security Warnings can be too much and that is why Microsoft changed them for Win7. Adjusting the Settings is very helpful. In Vista there were on or off, so that defeated the purpose of having the UAC at all:-) Helpful also is that sites you use a lot can be put in the trusted zone and one doesn't need to be concerned whatever the UAC Setting is.


    I hope it continues to work for you and also gives the level of protection you need.




    Glad to be able to assist:-)
