How can I get the IE warning box to stop popping up all the time?

Asked by: 51 views Computer Security

I have Windows Vista. I have IE 9 as a browser. I have Adobe Flash Player 11 downloaded, because I can’t seem to access many sites without it.

Over and over the orange warning box pops up, saying Flash Player wants to access a site. I check “allow” several times. The box keeps coming up in the same spot. It came up 9 times in a row recently!

Checking the “do not show this box again” is hilarious, because it keeps on coming!

Help! It is so annoying!
I am not too computer-savvy, so please use real English and give me directions (if you can provide them) in very clear, slow terms….. like I don’t understand what “scripting” means, for example… .. Thanks.

    This is actually one of the reasons why I never recommend downloading Internet Explorer 9 — there’s just still too many bugs in it. I’ll be happy to try to help you sort it out.

    There’s two versions of Internet Explorer 9. One is a 64-bit and the other is 32-bit. Unfortunately, Adobe Flash bugs out a bit with the 64-bit. Also, you want to make sure that you don’t have what’s called “add-ons” disabled. Also, Internet explorer is a bugger about little program downloads called “active X controllers.” They are little mini-programs that often you may get an orange security warning for, but will specifically say “This browser would like to install an Active X controller”.

    To see which edition of Internet Explorer you’re using

    Open Internet Explorer, and then do one of the following:

    In Internet Explorer 8, click the Help menu, and then click About Internet Explorer.

    In Internet Explorer 9, click the Tools button , and then click About Internet Explorer.
    If you’re using the 64-bit edition of Internet Explorer, 64-bit Edition will appear to the right of the version number. If you’re using the 32-bit edition, nothing will appear to the right of the version number.

    To use the 32-bit edition of Internet Explorer

    Click the Start button , click All Programs, and then click Internet Explorer.
    Don’t click either Internet Explorer (64-bit) or Internet Explorer (No Add-ons).

    Also to check and make sure Flashplayer is allowed to run. First make sure it’s listed in your add-ons and extensions:

    Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button . In the search box, type Internet Explorer, and then, in the list of results, click Internet Explorer.

    Click the Tools button , and then click Manage add-ons.
    Under Add-on Types, click Toolbars and Extensions.

    Under Show, you can select one of the following views of your add-ons:

    To display a complete list of the add-ons on your computer, click All add-ons.

    To display only those add-ons that were needed for the current webpage or a recently viewed webpage, click Currently loaded add-ons.

    To display add-ons that were preapproved by Microsoft, your computer manufacturer, or a service provider, click Run without permission.

    When you’re finished, click Close.

    NEXT make sure it’s always allowed to run

    Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button . In the search box, type Internet Explorer, and then, in the list of results, click Internet Explorer.

    Click the Tools button , and then click Manage add-ons.
    Under Show, click All add-ons.

    Click an add-on, and then do one of the following:

    To make the add-on available for use in the browser, click Enable.

    To turn the add-on off so it can’t be used in the browser, click Disable.

    Repeat step 4 for each add-on that you want to turn on or off. When you’re finished, click Close.

    Hope this helps, that sounds really annoying.

    That is the Flash Setting Manger.

    To revise your settings, go to Start > Control Panel > Flash

    under the Playback tab click on “Peer Assisted Networking by Site”

    Here you can manage your site preferences to allow safe sites and not get messaged. You will still get the message on any new sites you go to.
