    Unwanted I.E. Information Bar Message

    Hi All,
    Just registered on forum. Wonder if anyone can help me with a persisting issue when using I.E.?
    I am currently building a website (not live yet, hence no url) and have used Javascript within the code to ensure any new browser windows launched from links within the site content have a specified width and height.
    However, when launching any of the source html files the following information bar displays below the address field:
    To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted this file from showing active content what could access your computer. Click here for options....
    Options are:
    • Allow blocked content......
    • What's the risk?
    • Information Bar Help
    I have tried changing the I.E. security settings to prevent the information bar from displaying, without success.
    Can anyone advise me how I can retain Javascript within my code and lose the advised information bar?
    I know there must be a way of doing it as I've visited a number of sites which include Javascript, yet display new browser windows without the issue I am experiencing.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    Reference:
    Typical Javascript used:
    Within the <head> tags:
    <SCRIPT language="javascript">
    function createWindow(cUrl,cName,cFeatures) {
    var xWin = window.open(cUrl,cName,cFeatures)
    }
    </SCRIPT>
    Within the content (links):
    <a href="javascript:createWindow('http://www.costamediterranea.com/touristguide/castellon/vinaros/','window2','width=800,height=500,status,location,scrollbars,resizable')">Vinaros</a>

    I assume you're talking about Internet Explorer 7? If so, this is one of its "helpful" new features. I'm not sure it can be turned off, but one thing that might help is to turn off Pop-Up Blockers. Go into Tools / Internet Options, then select the Privacy tab. Un-check the box that says Turn on Pop-up Blocker. You could also add this site to your Trusted Sites (that's the Security tab of Internet Options).

    Let us know if any of this helps.

    Re: Unwanted I.E. Information Bar Message

    Hi there Senninha,

    and a warm welcome to these forums.

    However, when launching any of the source html files the following information bar displays below the address field:
    To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted this file from showing active content what could access your computer. Click here for options....
    Options are:
    • Allow blocked content......
    • What's the risk?
    • Information Bar Help

    This only happens locally. To effect a cure for the page add this snippet of code directly after the DOCTYPE...
    Code:
    
    <!-- saved from url=(0014)about:internet --> 
    
    To permantly disable this information do this...
    1. open IE.
    2. click 'Tools'.
    3. click 'Internet Options'.
    4. click 'Advanced' tab.
    5. scroll down to 'Security'.
    6. check 'Allow active content to run on My Computer'.
    7. click 'Apply'.
    8. click 'OK'
    9. have a beer.

    Thank you both for offering such quick replies!
    Coothead; your suggestion has rectified the problem! (I've added the code and amended the Microsoft settings as advised) Many thanks for the detailed help.
    This issue has persisted for sometime. It is somewhat of a relief it has now been positively addressed.
    Regards and many thanks,
    Senninha

    I loaded in that code on my own website and it has knocked out all my links to different website. Do you know what the problem is? Thanks
