Dell XPS 420 running Vista and IE9. On IE9 startup and each new page I get an IE Security warning: "A Website wants to open web content using this program on your computer.
This program will open outside of Protected mode.....
Name: Adobe Flash Player
Publisher: Adobe Systems INC
(then the following buttons) Allow Don't allow"

To close the box I must click on "don't allow". Then I am fine untill I click on another item, and get the same message. Checking the "don't show me the warning for this program again" is ignored by IE. For example, on this site while looking for a thread about this problem each time I open a new thread or go back I get the same message. I found a thread started on 9 Aug, 2010 by suhjonathan97 (and another user) that described my exact problem but the thread expired without an anwser. I ran avira, no virus detected. Tried a restore from yesterday no help. Oh yeah, when I start IE the warning comes up while IE is trying to connect to the internet, have to click "don't allow" to finish IE start.

Make sure you have the latest Windows Updates, including a Hotfix for this particular issue on Vista.

Checked windows update,claims no new updates available. Looked on line for a hotfix, could not find this problem (Active X control) . Did find this problem was related to IE9 64 bit. Checked, I'm using 32 bit IE9. Can you point me in the right direction to get the Vista fix?

Got an e-mail reply from Phantom 010 that does't show here asking if I have patch KB933566 from MS07-033. I could not find it in my updates file list so went to MS and found it. When I tried to download it a box popped up saying it did not apply to my version of IE (said its for IE 6 & 7).

THIS will disable the error messages but it's a temporary fix. Although I don't have Protected Mode on my Windows XP and it never caused me any grief, some will have to disagree with disabling that security feature in Windows Vista...

Thanks for the help. I started IE with no add-ons and the problem dissappeared so I guess the problem to be the add-on. So I uninstalled Flash player 11, restarted IE regular way and the problem is gone. Will see if I can live without flash player for awhile. Thanks for your help

It's hard to live without Flash on the Web nowadays! Sooner or later, you'll miss it.
