How do I remove the bar saying my security settings are at risk?

    How do I get rid of the annoying yellow bar which comes up
    each time I click on a web page and says "Your security settings put your
    computer at risk. Click here to change your security settings...."

    I didn't need Microsoft telling me what to do in IE6 and I surely don't need
    them holding my hand in IE7.

    When I allowed Microsoft to "fix" my settings, I couldn't see the content of
    my web pages or my e-mail in Outlook, so I re-set everything to enable under
    the Custom Security settings. Then the annoying yellow bar comes up each
    time.

    What I am asking is how to get rid of the yellow bar? Is it an add-on that
    has to be disabled? What can get rid of that annoying thing?

    Is this on XP Pro? If so, IE7 has added a number of group policies, one of
    which controls this. To modify this policy, run gpedit.msc and change the
    policy at Administrative Templates->Windows Components->Internet
    Explorer->Turn off the Security Settings Check feature.

    Re: How do I remove the bar saying my security settings are at ris

    Hi Tom,

    Thanks for your help, as this did solve the problem. Of the Security
    Features, which one of the following list (that I disabled) do you believe
    was directly responsible for the yellow line? In other words, I don't want
    to disable any features that did not cause the problem.

    Here are the ones I disabled:

    PROTECTION FROM ZONE ELEVATION
    INFORMATION BAR
    RESTRICT ACTIVE X INSTALL
    RESTRICT FILE DOWNLOAD

    One of these did it, but I don't want to disable any features that were not
    directly responsible for the problem. Do you know which one of the four is
    the item I can keep disabled while enabling the others?

    Thanks again for your great help!

    None of the above. You want to *enable* Administrative Templates->Windows
    Components->Internet Explorer->Turn off the Security Settings Check.

    Of the ones you disabled, it would have been the information bar, but now
    you won't see that in any situation, not just the security setting prompt.

    Run gpedit.msc (only works on XP Pro). Once in the group policy editor, you
    want to *enable* Administrative Templates->Windows Components->Internet
    Explorer->Turn off the Security Settings Check.

    Of the ones you disabled, it would have been the information bar, but now
    you won't see that in any situation, not just the security setting prompt.

    You could try merging the following into your registry and rebooting:


    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Security]
    "DisableSecuritySettingsCheck"=dword:00000001

    If you merge that into the registry, it will create the folder for you.

    The easiest way to get rid of the security warning bar is to click on it and
    select the option to "Fix Settings for Me..."

    Thank you very much Tom! I was FINALLY able to quit wasting my time trying
    to find a way to turn that trash off! I could NOT believe that! It's being
    asked all over the net, and no one knows how to turn it off! Except YOU. I
    can’t believe the number of dweebs answering “it’s for your own good; you
    don’t want to turn it offâ€.

    Hey Microsoft...what's the point of making something configurable if you are
    going to nag them every time they click a button!!!??? How about different
    versions? One for advanced users, who want to tweak their own settings, and
    will live with the consequences (wait, doesn't Firefox do that??), and one
    for the inept. The one for the inept could be marketed to those who love
    “free†puppy dog and butterfly screen savers and those who believe they’ll
    soon be making $5000 a week from the comfort of their homes over the
    internet. It’s easy!

    You shouldn’t have to hack the registry or group policy to turn it off.
    Pull your heads out.

    But I digress, thanks again Tom!

    My gosh that is lame!

    I have the same issue, want to disable this check in XP home.

    No I emphatically am not going to let MS set my security settings for me. I
    just want it to shut up and go away.

    If it involves removing a registry entry, will hijackthis do it?

    Otherwise, a workable solution in plain english or it is uninstalled...

    Oh and meta-moral for MS - nagging is the eighth deadly sin. Nagging =
    layoffs.


    Sincerely,

    Tom -

    I tried this and got an error message when I tried to run gpedit. Windows
    cannot find this file. Really, why is IE7 trying to take over my computer
    with this stuff, and why don't they make it easier to turn this off! I'm
    very confortable with my settings and I've run this way for many years with a
    third party firewall. Actually, the only reason I still use IE is that some
    websites don't work very well with Mozilla or Firefox. Other wise I wouldn't
    still be using it. So much for winning me over to Ie full time - When
    Microsoft makes it this difficult to use their product the way we want, they
    just perpetuate our stance.
