    we have IE7 on all our machines at work, to access a particular web based
    application we must enable all ACTIVEX, doing this a yellow bar appears on
    the top of every browser window saying "your current security settings put
    the computer at risk. click here to change your security settings"

    how do I hide or get rid of this yellow bar?

  2. From IE7 help:

    Can I turn off the Information bar?
    Yes, you can, but we don't recommend it. If you do want to turn it off, you
    have to turn it off for each type of message.

    To stop the information bar from blocking file and software downloads
    Click to open Internet Explorer.

    Click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.

    Click the Security tab, and then click Custom level.

    Do one or both of the following:

    To turn off the Information bar for ActiveX controls, scroll to the ActiveX
    controls and plug-ins section of the list, and then, under Automatic
    prompting for ActiveX controls, click Enable.

    To turn off the Information bar for file downloads, scroll to the Downloads
    section of the list, and then, under Automatic prompting for file downloads,
    click Enable.

    Click OK, click Yes to confirm that you want to make the change, and then
    click OK again.

    Frank, are these changes per user (login) or machine?

  4. I would assume per user, but I don't know.
