This annoying solicitation to download this software pops up continually, and I always refuse to download it. *(Would you accept free ice cream from a stranger on the street?) *Anything I can do to stop this, or should I give in and download it?

I use IE6 and have active x and all scripting turned off in the internet zone. * *With that setup, all I ever get is a warning about the page not displaying properly. * I don't get warnings about downloading "flash."

Marti, thanks for the response. *I have IE 5.5, I think. *How would I go about turning off active x and whatever else needs to be shut down?

In IE: *tools | options | security | internet zone | custom settings. * I have all active x "off" and everything relating to scripting "off." *
For sites that need active x and/or scripting that I really need to access, *I put them in the IE trusted zone, where the security settings are not so tight. * Sites that I have in the "trusted zone" include: *DSLR, MS update, my banks, my ADSL provider, pharmacies (for requesting refills on-line), and one or two others.
