    Why does this Box Keep Reappearing in IE 8,

    "A website wants to open web content using this program on your computer"

    keeps appearing each time a new screen opens? When I click "allow", the messagw appears again almost instantly. When I click "Don't allow", it appears again. Sometimes I have to close on the red "X" several times to get it to stop reappering. The program is Adobe Flash Player that wants to open. Can you please tell me how to stop this annoying problem?

    Click Tools > Internet Options > Security > Internet > Custom Level... > Scroll down to the ActiveX controls and plug-ins group.

    Ensure that all ActiveX options are set to either "Enable" or "Prompt".

    If no luck,

    THIS will disable the error messages.

    Or, reset Internet Explorer.
