    Thank you for the tip! This was driving me nuts, especially on sites such as where one frequently clicks from page to page with mixed content from a security perspective.

    Thanks that prompt was killing me. Just updated from ie6 to ie8. And that tip was just what me needed. 🙂

    Thank you! That prompt was driving me nuts! I have no idea why Microsoft would think the average end user would want to be bugged so often about that or UAC warnings either. It may be more secure, but it’s just about as annoying as actually having a virus, so in the end it seems a little pointless to me. Anyway, thanks again.

    A safer, simpler approach is to upgrade to IE9, which keeps key mixed content protection, but removes the modal dialog box.

    Thank you very much. It helped me. If pictures can be clearer will be even more helpful. My eyes are very close to the screen in order to see. Have a good day.

    If you click the image, you will see enlarged pictures, which to most people, very clear. Enjoy~!
